Past Events


Santa Paws
He might not have cheeks like roses and a nose like a cherry, but Santa Paws brought Christmas cheer in his own special way to Palomar Medical Center Escondido. The annual event is sponsored by the Palomar Health Foundation. All donations support the Palomar Paws program. 

Music and Therapy
Looking for solutions to improve patient experience, Palomar Health Nurse Practitioner Laura Weber saw a program on TV about an organization using music to connect patients with happy memories. After receiving administration approval, Weber led an effort to get Villa Pomerado certified in the “Music and Memory” program, a program that helps people with a wide range of cognitive and physical challenges find renewed meaning and connections in their lives through the gift of personalized music.

The Consuelo Masonic Lodge in Escondido and the Palomar Health Foundation brought joy to patients with caroling and presents for the holiday season. You can watch them sing and see their festive hats. 

Gift Giving

Staff from the Escondido office of Interim Healthcare of San Diego County was looking for someone to help during the holidays last year when development director, John Cooney, made a connection with the Palomar Health Foundation. Soon staff was collecting gifts for four residents at Villa Pomerado, Palomar Health's skilled nursing facility.
