CARLSBAD MEDICAL CENTER
Carlsbad Medical Center is a fixture in the area’s medical community, serving as a progressive medical resource within Carlsbad and its neighboring localities since 1977. Today, the hospital stands as a 127-bed, full-service, acute-care community hospital well equipped with 420 dedicated employees, in addition to 55 active and three courtesy physicians. A full scope of services can be accessed through Carlsbad Medical Center, with highlights including an Acute-Care Rehabilitation Unit, a 24-Hour Emergency Department, a Level II Special Care Nursery, an Outpatient Diagnostic Center & Sleep Studies Lab, a Medical/Surgical/Pediatric Unit and Occupational/Industrial Medicine, Cardiac, Imaging and Wound Care.
In order to meet the always-evolving medical needs of the area, Carlsbad Medical Center underwent a $12 million expansion in 2006-2007. Major features of this project that can be found in today’s hospital include a new and enhanced Intensive Care Unit, a leading-edge Digital Imaging System, a 64-Slice CT Scanner and a new on-campus Comprehensive Outpatient Diagnostic Center.
