Arriving at Tri-City Medical Center
Our admitting department works tirelessly to ensure our patients are greeted and taken care of before surgery. By providing a private setting where patients and hospital representatives can meet is vital when discussing insurance information and expectations during the stay. In addition, patients will review all medical consent forms as well as regulatory information – during this time, an admitting representative walks patients through the process. If you have any questions about being admitted to Tri-City Medical Center, please call our main hospital line at (760) 724-8411.
Providing Personal Information
For both our records and patient safety, we require patients to complete and sign several forms. If a patient is unable to complete the forms, a designated family member or legal guardian is required to complete all requested information.
Patients receive and are required to wear an identification bracelet around the wrist at all times. This allows for quick reference and includes name, date of birth, medical record number and other identifying information we use within the hospital. Hospital staff also uses a patients' identification bracelet before administrating any medications or treatments.
Meeting our Staff
Members from our medical team will meet with patients and go over medical information as well as answer any questions a patient may have. All staff members are required to display a name badge with their picture and job title for security purposes – if someone does not produce a name badge, patients are asked to find a staff member with a badge for their own safety. Our highly-trained staff is here to help our patients get better; our patients are encouraged to reach out to them whenever they are in need.

In the 1950s, the north coastal region of San Diego County was rural and had few services of its own. Community leaders knew that a modern local hospital was essential to the area’s growth. Business and political leaders from the surrounding cities of Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista came together with the idea of creating a regional hospital.
Voters elected to form the Tri-City Hospital District and approved a bond issue to fund land purchases and construction costs. By 1961, the hospital opened its doors with 42 physicians on staff. Almost immediately, the need to expand was evident. North County’s population was growing and Tri-City Hospital was ready to keep pace.
Keeping Pace with Local Growth
Through the 1970s there was continual expansion of services, with additions of a helipad, cardiopulmonary lab, a 56-bed north wing, more surgical suites and a 42-bed maternity unit. The 1980’s brought more building, with a four-story wing added and existing facilities remodeled. New services were added, too, including cardiac rehabilitation, mental health unit and dialysis center.
By 1985, the official name of the hospital was changed to Tri-City Medical Center to reflect its growth into a comprehensive, regional facility. Patients were able to receive modern medical services and benefit from advances in technology, as TCMC developed a Magnetic Resonance Imaging Center, a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and updated Emergency Department.
