Tri-City sues PPH over express-care clinic plans
North County Times

Tri-City Healthcare District is asking a judge to block Escondido-based Palomar Pomerado Health from setting up three new small grocery store-based health clinics in Oceanside, Temecula and San Marcos. In a lawsuit filed by Tri-City on Feb. 26, the Oceanside-based health care district alleges that Palomar Pomerado’s plan to open three new “express-care” clinics violates state laws that forbid a public health care district from expanding services beyond its boundaries without permission from a special state-chartered agency.
