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. 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 health care 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.
