In an impressive demonstration of commitment to ethical and sound business practices, Palomar Health became the first healthcare district in California to be designated as a Certified Healthcare District by the Association of California Healthcare Districts (ACHD). To be designated as a Certified Healthcare District, districts must demonstrate Best Practices in Governance that have been set forth by the ACHD Governance Committee. This ensures that public healthcare districts conduct business in a manner that is open and transparent for the benefit of the communities they serve. MORE.
In the Avila household, the spirit of giving runs deep. Norbert and Julie Avila, a husband and wife who are longtime Palomar Health employees believe in supporting their colleagues, community and the organization.
With the help of the Avilas, more than 800 employees and a generous donation made by Palomar Health Foundation Board of Director Harold Dokmo and his wife, Penny, a new chapel at the Palomar Medical Center became a reality. "It is more blessed to give than to receive,” Julie Avila said.
The Palomar Health Foundation wishes to thank its employees - employees like Norbert and Julie Avila - who collectively have raised more than $3 million! We are proud to say Palomar Health employees are among the most generous with a 78 percent giving participation rate.
