In 1904, our founder, Ellen G. White, helped to purchase 54 acres of land with the purpose of beginning a healthcare institution, Paradise Valley Hospital.
Paradise Valley Hospital is the South Bay’s oldest hospital. In fact, we are the second oldest hospital in all of San Diego County, and the largest employer in National City. For more than 100 years, Paradise Valley Hospital has served San Diego faithfully, proud of our heritage and providing numerous programs and services to meet the changing needs of our community.
Today, our 291-bed, acute care hospital offers a nationally acclaimed obstetrics program, a state-of-the-art 64-slice CT scanner, a renowned rehabilitation center, the only Hyperbaric Medicine program in the South Bay and distinguished Behavioral Health services. Paradise Valley Hospital also offers 24-hour Emergency Services, Cardiac Catheterization Lab, comprehensive surgical services, Inpatient Medical and Surgical Center, and Paradise Senior Health Center.
It is our vision of treating the whole person--mind, body and spirit, which incorporates our long heritage of Wellness and Prevention ideals, now considered progressive; including practicing healthy lifestyle through diet, exercise and services like our massage therapy and acupuncture offered through our Wellness Center.
Paradise Valley Hospital’s dedication to whole person wellness through healthy living is evident in the variety of complimentary or low-cost health education classes; support groups and preventative care services we provide to the community. Nutrition counseling, smoking cessation classes, weight and stress management classes, and health screenings are just a few of our many offerings. The hospital also provides school partnership programs, which provide tutorial assistance and encouragement to local students, and many other programs and services designed to meet the needs of the surrounding community. Even at the mature age of 109, we are progressive in our approach to healthcare.
Paradise Valley Hospital boasts a multi-cultural staff of more than 300 physicians representing a variety of specialties. Paradise Valley Hospital is part of Prime Healthcare Services, of which Dr. Prem Reddy serves as chairman of the board.
Since its beginning in 1904, Paradise Valley Hospital has continued its founding mission of providing health care services to the surrounding, diverse communities in San Diego. As Paradise Valley Hospital celebrates over 100 years of service we invite you to take a look at our heritage and our commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of our community and let us continue to serve the healthcare needs of you and your family for the next 100 years to come.
