Vice President
Palomar Health Foundation

Escondido, California

Reports To
President & Chief Executive Officer, Palomar Health


Palomar Health is the largest healthcare district serving communities in an 850 square mile area and a trauma center that covers 2,200 square miles of South Riverside and North San Diego Counties of Southern California. In addition to three hospitals, Palomar Health offers home health care, surgery, skilled nursing, ambulatory care, behavioral health services, would care, and community health education programs.

While Palomar Health has been serving North County for more than six decades, the Foundation was later established in 1984 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization to support the programs, services, projects and growing needs of the healthcare district.

As the hospital district grew, the need was recognized to formalize its fundraising efforts, and in 1984 Palomar Pomerado Health Foundation was incorporated.

Palomar Health Foundation, as it is known today, is composed of professional staff and volunteers committed to seeking philanthropic support for hospital technology and equipment, programs, services, community initiatives, outreach programs, health education and other needs identified by Palomar Health. With continued decreases in Medicare reimbursements and increasing costs of medical care, philanthropic gifts are vital to keep Palomar Health at the forefront of medical healthcare delivery.

Palomar Health Foundation is overseen by a Board of Directors composed of volunteers from all walks of life to represent the communities we serve. These Board members are tireless in their efforts to seek funding opportunities and to assure that donor dollars are spent the way the donor intended.

Community support through contributions to Palomar Health Foundation has resulted in major advances in medical technology and patient care, innovative community health programs, important support for under-served members of the community, and building and refurbishment of hospital facilities. The staff and volunteers of Palomar Health Foundation are proud to serve our healthcare communities.

The Vice President of the Palomar Health Foundation serves as the Executive Director/chief development officer and leads a team of professionals that provide a full-service development effort, raising philanthropic funds for priority needs as outlined by the CEO and the Board of Trustees. The Foundation has a governing Board of Directors made up of volunteer community leaders devoted to the health system and the mission it has set for achieving a healthy community.
