About Us

Palomar Surgical Center Escondido was created with the commitment to provide high quality and efficient service to our patients. We strive to reduce wait times, and our experienced staff at Palomar Surgical Center Escondido works to provide reassurance, personal attention and quality care to all patients and families.

The design and goals of the facility compliment the physician’s schedule. This is where the staff makes a difference to aid the facility in being successful. We accomplish this by starting and completing cases on time, having timely discharges, and utilizing high quality equipment.
