Grossmont Healthcare District

Grossmont Healthcare District

Helping our community address its unmet healthcare needs.

In 1952, the Grossmont Healthcare District – known at that time as Grossmont Hospital District – was formed to build and operate Grossmont Hospital. In 1991, the District Board decided to lease the hospital operations to Sharp HealthCare. The affiliation agreement included the establishment of a non-profit entity, Grossmont Hospital Corporation.

Today, Grossmont Healthcare District continues to serve as landlord of the hospital on behalf of local taxpayers and is a public agency that supports many non-profit, health-related community programs and services in San Diego’s East County region. In addition to assisting these non-profit organizations, the District also is an active supporter of healthcare education and training for the benefit of future generations. The District operates the Dr. William C. Herrick Community Health Care Library at Briercrest Park, a comprehensive consumer health library specializing in providing reliable health information, accessible both on-site and online. The District also operates the James G. Stieringer Conference Center and smaller meeting rooms that are available to community-based, non-profit, health-related organizations for lectures, seminars, workshops, and classes.

Vitas Healthcare

vitas-healthcare-png

VITAS Healthcare has proudly served the San Diego community since 1978, by providing care to those with advanced illnesses and their families. We believe delivering great hospice care starts with providing access to more services designed to meet the needs of our patients, families and referral partners.

In 2018, our home medical equipment team provided 1625 stat equipment deliveries for faster acute setting discharges. Our staff had the privilege of providing over 104,000 days of care for our patients in San Diego. Our Vitas physicians continue to make an average of 100+ face to face visits to our patients each month.

VITAS Healthcare transitions patients efficiently and seamlessly from hospital to home, from curative to palliative, from chronic to end-stage. As a post-acute care provider, the VITAS program in San Diego provides advanced levels of care, including, when medically necessary, shifts of Intensive Comfort Care (continuous acute symptom management) in the home and, when symptoms cannot be controlled at home, round-the-clock inpatient care through our partnerships with 17 local hospitals and more than 80 skilled nursing facilities. Our hospice services reduce the likelihood of futile visits to the ED and unnecessary hospital admissions.

The VITAS team in San Diego is one of 44 offices nationwide serving patients in 15 states and the District of Columbia. At VITAS, we make sure that patients and their families come first!
