Public Hospitals in San Diego County Battle for Patients
Oceanside-based Tri-City Medical Center and Palomar Medical Center in Escondido are competing for patients as questions swirl about the leadership at Tri-City.Â A special investigation looked at the political tensions and other pressures at play in the situation.
In conjunction with the Center for California Health Care Journalism, the North County Times produced a series of articles and a slide show about the competition between Tri-City Medical Center and Palomar Medical Center.
The Center for California Health Care Journalism is funded by the California HealthCare Foundation, which publishes California Healthline.
