ESCONDIDO–The Standby Emergency Department will treat non-critical care and behavioral health patients, and stabilize patients who need to be transported to the emergency department at the new Palomar Medical Center.
Palomar Health Downtown Campus, 555 E. Valley Parkway, was formerly the home of Palomar Medical Center. In August, Palomar Medical Center relocated most of its services to the new hospital on Citracado Parkway, including intensive care and emergency medical services.
Palomar Health Downtown Campus now specializes in women’s and children’s, behavioral health and rehabilitation services.
Standby emergency departments are required to have physicians on call. The Standby Emergency Department at Palomar Health Downtown Campus will have a physican on duty and emergency room staff at all times.
