Eisenhower Medical Center in talks with UC San Diego
The Desert Sun

Eisenhower Medical Center, a major Coachella Valley institution since 1971, is pursuing a partnership with the larger UC San Diego that would allow the two health systems to work together. The move could potentially usher dozens of desert patients into clinical trials and expand the facility into a teaching and research hospital.

Though the deal is still under contract negotiations for 90 days, the Rancho Mirage hospital’s management has held meetings with the university’s leadership and the board approved signing a letter of intent that would move them toward a clinical affiliation for medical services.
