The accomplishments reflect Tri-City Medical Center’s commitment to the health and wellness of the North County community and their dedication to exceptional healthcare

Oceanside CA— Tri-City Medical Center is proud to announce it has recently earned achievements and recognitions for its community service, pregnancy and newborn, and neonatal intensive care programs. Nationally, Newsweek named Tri-City Medical Center one of 2020’s Best Maternity Hospitals in the country for its excellence in maternity care – including low rates of C-section, episiotomy, early elective delivery and following important protocols to protect moms and babies.
Locally, the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce named the medical center its Community Impact, Large Company award winner for 2020. The award recognized the medical center for year-round active engagement in the community through outreach initiatives and providing financial and in-kind support for local organizations that are “moving the needle” on community health issues and addressing social determinants of health.
Over the past year, Tri-City has rolled out its COASTAL Commitment, which stands for Community Outreach and Support Through Active Leadership. In addition to financial support of programs aimed to address areas identified in the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), the program formalizes active engagement in the community by the hospital’s leaders, which was recognized by the Carlsbad Chamber award.
Tri-City’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) also achieved a milestone by surpassing 10 years without a single PICC line, or peripherally inserted central catheter, infection. Tri-City operates the only Level III NICU in North County and cares for the communities’ most fragile newborns.
“Tri-City Medical Center is excited to celebrate these latest achievements with our employees, physicians and leadership, who have relentlessly worked to provide excellent care to our community,” said Steve Dietlin, CEO of Tri-City Medical Center. “We are appreciative to know our commitment to providing the highest standards of care is recognized both nationally and locally, while we continuously work to further enhance patient outcomes and patient experience.”
In September, Tri-City Medical Center also celebrated receiving eight certifications and awards from the American Heart and Stroke Association (AHA), which included being the only medical center in San Diego County to receive Gold Plus in both heart failure and stroke care. Tri-City earned more honors than any other hospital in the region. More than 2,500 hospitals participate in AHA’s Get With The Guidelines initiative, which ensures the best possible care for heart and stroke patients.
