OUR HIGHLY SKILLED HANDS AND HIGH-TECH TOOLS WORK TOGETHER TO RESTORE YOUR HEALTH AND QUALITY OF LIFE

BERNADETTE'S STORY IS JUST ONE OF MANY LOVE STORIES

She fell hard on the floor and instantly knew she was in trouble. Without warning, Bernadette's leg hyper-extended and she collapsed. Her husband, Pedro, was hospitalized and no one could help her.

Bernadette was admitted into surgery at Pomerado Hospital with a serious tibia injury and a fractured ankle. Terrified and unsure, Bernadette met Dr. Kevin Owsley, an orthopedic surgeon, who reassured her. She felt like she was in good hands. After the surgery, Bernadette awoke to learn she would not be able to bear weight on either foot for eight to 10 weeks, but she would heal. The recovery was difficult. And through it all, Pedro's condition worsensed. Less than two months after her fall, Bernadette lost Pedro after 51 years of marriage.

Grieving and still recovering, Bernadette mostly remembers the compassionate care Dr. Owsley and the staff at Pomerado Hospital showed her. “He was kind and encouraging. He made me believe I would walk again.” Indeed, she did. Learn more about Bernadette's story.

Forensic HEalth Services selected for human services GRant

The Palomar Health Foundation graciously accepted a grant of $14,600 from the Escondido Charitable Foundation, an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation as part of their Health and Human Services grants awarded to local nonprofits whose focus is on serving San Diego communities.

The grant was made possible by The Thea Schultze Children's Fund and will be designated to benefit Palomar Health's North San Diego County Forensic Health Services which provides forensic evaluations for abused children, sexual assault victims and health exams for children removed from homes in North County for foster care.

Unlike most grant processes, the 30 award recipients were nominated by leaders of The San Diego Regional Affiliate program. We are grateful to the Escondido Charitable Foundation for their nomination.
