Palomar to close downtown hospital
San Diego Union-Tribune

Hospital directors voted 5-2 Wednesday night to close Escondido’s downtown hospital and move its existing patient services to sister facilities in 90 days.

The move came after the board met in closed session for three hours, emerging about 10 a.m. and taking a vote that means layoffs for hundreds of employees who work at the Palomar Health Downtown Campus.
