Palomar Health’s Downtown Escondido Campus May Close

A North County hospital that is losing more than $20 million a year may soon close its doors after six decades of treating patients. The board of directors for Palomar Health’s Downtown Escondido campus is expected to vote Wednesday on shutting down the facility, which has been on E. Valley Parkway since 1950. However, residents got a chance to weigh in on the decision Monday night at a public forum.
