Stroke Center of Excellence

When a stroke occurs, every second counts.

Palomar Medical Center Escondido and Palomar Medical Center Poway are nationally recognized by the Joint Commission as Primary Stroke Centers. Our clinical teams specialize in the most advanced stroke care management, treating patients quickly to prevent further damage caused by a stroke.
'‘I want to thank the amazing team of physicians and nurses for saving my life, the Rehabilitation Team for helping me to recover my quality of life, and Palomar Health for making the commitment to provide outstanding care for patients like you and me.’' - John Forst, Grateful Patient
