Tri-City Medical Center Is Committed to North County

In the 1950s, North County was a rural area lacking advanced healthcare services. Visionary community and business leaders from Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista formed Tri-City Healthcare District with the goal of improving healthcare access. Tri-City Medical Center opened its doors in 1961 and has been faithfully providing quality and patient-focused healthcare services to the coastal North County region ever since. Our mission is to advance the health and wellness of the community we serve.

As part of this mission, Tri-City Medical Center is actively engaged in our community through outreach initiatives and provides financial and in-kind support for those organizations that are best positioned to “move the needle” on community health issues and address social determinants of health.

Tri-City’s COASTAL Commitment—a wide-ranging outreach initiative with more than 80 partner organizations—is an opportunity for the medical center and its staff to actively support and lead community improvement programs. Priorities for the COASTAL Commitment are data driven and align with the findings of the Hospital Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties (HASDIC) Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).

Below you can learn more about the COASTAL Commitment and some of the ways Tri-City Medical Center invests in our North County community.

COASTAL Commitment

Community Outreach And Support Through Active Leadership

BP Checks


High blood pressure can lead to higher risk of health problems in the future. Tri-City is helping our community know their numbers by making blood pressure screening more available in the region, with increased focus on members of at-risk and historically under-served communities. Through our partnerships, we offer blood pressure checks to the community at no cost.

If you’d like to offer blood pressure checks at your organization or event please contact

Hearing Checks


Chronic noise and aging are some factors that lead to hearing loss. Getting your hearing checked at all stages of life is important. We are helping our community by conducting screenings for hearing loss at senior centers, health fairs and community events.

If you’d like to offer hearing checks at your organization or event please contact

Flu Shots

Flu vaccination can reduce the risk of flu-associated hospitalization for children, working age adults, and older adults. The flu vaccine prevents tens of thousands of hospitalizations each year, which is why we offer them complimentary to our local community with flu shot clinics during October and November at our hospital.

If you’d like to learn more about the Flu Shot events please contact

Health Fairs


Senior Living Communities

Health fairs give us the opportunity to offer services, educate and connect with our local community.

Health fairs can cater to elementary students, families, senior citizens and even corporate employees.

Community members who may not have easy access to healthcare can take advantage of educational resources and basic preventive medicine. We strive to advance the health and wellness of the community, and health fairs are a great place to start.

If you’d like host a health fair with Tri-City please contact

Transportation Vouchers


Tri-City partners with these organizations to offer free rides for community members that don’t have access to transportation. We also partner with FACT (Facilitating Access to Coordinated Transportation), an agency that helps thousands of mobility-challenged San Diego County residents each year. The goal of the “Rides to Wellness program” is to make it easier for our patients to get to and from the hospital. Tri-City Medical Center was proud to receive the FACT’s “Norine Sigafoose Partner of the Year Award” in 2017 for our efforts to provide access to healthcare to our community.

If you’d like more information on our transportation vouchers please contact



Telemedicine is the distribution of health-related services such as examinations or appointments through telecommunication technologies instead of in-person. These appointments utilize video on secure platforms. To partake in a Telemedicine appointment, you will need access to a laptop, desktop computer, smartphone or tablet with a camera, and microphone connected to the internet.

Behavioral Health Programs


According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment. Tri-City partners with organizations to help close that gap within our community. Through our partnerships we are able to offer these resources to those who might not have access to care.

If you’d like more information and resources on our behavioral health programs please contact 760.940.5051

Event Sponsorships


Tri-City sponsors select local events that help move the needle on the community’s health needs.
