Grossmont Healthcare District

Helping our community address its unmet health care needs.

In 1952, the Grossmont Healthcare District – known at that time as Grossmont Hospital District – was formed to build and operate Grossmont Hospital Hospital, as well as take care of the healthcare needs of San Diego’s East County region. 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. The District is also the regions public health agency that supports and partners with many health-related organizations that provide community programs and services with a specific focus on the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) of the population. In addition to assisting these health organizations, the District is an active supporter of healthcare education and training for the benefit of future generations. The District operates a comprehensive consumer health library, providing reliable health information that is accessible both on-site and online. The District also operates a large public auditorium and smaller meeting rooms that are available for lectures, seminars, workshops, and classes on health-related topics.
