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’s 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 50 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).
