join us in honoring your nurse!

Nurses WeekHas a Palomar Health nurse or special caregiver made a difference in your life or the life of a loved one?  Our nurses are more than just healthcare specialists.  They are our trusted advisors.  They are compassionate friends.  They are heroes.  Their selfless commitment to improving our lives is why we're asking you to join us in recognizing them


With your generous gift, you will let your nurse know his or her work is meaningful to you.  Your gift will support Nursing Education Programs at Palomar Health to help our existing nurses and new nursing graduates further their education and expertise.

Escondido consuelo mason lodge #325 spreads holiday cheer

The Masons Consuelo Lodge #325, 1331 S. Escondido Boulevard in Escondido, made a special holiday visit to Palomar Medical Center.   Organized by Foundation Board Member, Fred Nasseri, owner of Unicorn Jewelry.  After approaching his Lodge about organizing a special holiday visit, Lodge members collected brand new items to make hospital stays more comfortable such as hair brushes, warm socks, reader glasses, toothbrushes and small flashlights.  These were festively bagged and hand-delivered by Fred and his Lodge members John, Chris and Christian to more than 50 patients Palomar Medical Center’s 6th and 7th floors.  The visits were cause for smiles, handshakes, high fives, and best wishes for the holidays.  While visiting the patient floors, the Lodge members also delivered large tins of delicious popcorn to staff lounges to help make sure everyone enjoyed a holiday treat.
