1980's - 1982 – 1991

In the 1980s the cities of Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista, grew by more than 80 percent, thus expanding the need for increasingly sophisticated healthcare services. In response, Tri-City Hospital added a four-story wing and remodeled existing facilities. By 1985, the official name of the hospital was changed to Tri-City Medical Center to reflect its growth into a comprehensive, regional facility.
