Welcome to UC San Diego Health
Welcome to UC San Diego Health. We are glad you are here. Our team members are dedicated to ensuring every patient feels cared for and belongs.
Alvarado Hospital Medical Center is now a part of UC San Diego Health. As a current patient, we want to assure you that your continuity of care is our top priority. The most significant change you will notice is the name. You are now receiving care at East Campus Medical Center at UC San Diego Health.
East Campus Medical Center is UC San Diego Health’s first community hospital, developed to provide high-quality, comprehensive care close to home for people throughout eastern San Diego. You will still receive the same quality care experience you have come to expect from Alvarado Hospital, but now you will also have access to the most advanced treatments, therapies and cures developed by some of the nation’s most prominent physicians and scientists.
U.S. News & World Report ranks UC San Diego Health as the region’s No. 1 health care provider, tied for first in California, and among the nation’s Honor Roll of Best Hospitals (18th out of 4,500 hospitals in the country). We are ranked highly by many sources for clinical quality, but we are also known widely for outstanding patient experience and affordability. We are constantly finding new ways to improve care and to break down access barriers to the region’s best care.
To your good health,
CEO, UC San Diego Health
