Business and political leaders from Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista came together in the 1950's to create a regional hospital. Voters approved a bond issue to fund land purchases and construction costs. The hospital opened its doors with 42 physicians on staff in 1961. Expansion continued in the 1960's, 70's and 80's.

In 1985, the hospital name became Tri-City Medical Center to reflect its growth into a comprehensive, regional facility. Today, the San Diego North County Hospital continues to provide medical excellence, emergency preparedness and community services.
