Children in northwest San Diego County will soon have their own Castle of Care™. Sanford Health recently announced plans to open a Sanford Children’s Clinic in Oceanside, CA. In partnership with Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, the primary care pediatric clinic is made possible by a $2.5 million donation from Pamela and Martin Wygod and the Rose Foundation.
"Marty and I are honored to share the vision of bringing exceptional pediatric care to the Oceanside area. Sanford Health and Rady Children’s Hospital are to be congratulated on their collaboration to make this vision a reality," said Pamela Wygod, President of the Rose Foundation.
A portion of the donation will be used to purchase a 28,500-square-foot building and Sanford Children’s and Rady Children’s will share space in the building. Sanford Children’s will open a general pediatric clinic using 6,000 square feet of the building. Rady Children’s will consolidate four nearby specialty clinics into the facility. Additionally, an urgent care, after-hours clinic for children will be available within the building. The entire facility is expected to open spring 2011.
The Sanford Children’s Clinic in Oceanside is the third Sanford Children’s World Clinic announced by Sanford Health as part of the initiatives outlined after a $400 million donation from Denny Sanford in 2007. Sanford Children’s Clinic in Duncan, OK opened August 2009. Sanford Children’s Clinic in Belize City, Belize will open in 2011.
