About Southwest Healthcare System
Southwest Healthcare System is comprised of two acute-care hospitals: Inland Valley Medical Center, in Wildomar, California and Rancho Springs Medical Center, in Murrieta, California. Both hospitals are accredited by the Joint Commission.
Rancho Springs Medical Center in Murrieta, California, is a 120 bed acute-care hospital with the region's only Pediatric Emergency Services team. This service is made possible through an agreement with Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego; the Emergency Department at Rancho Springs is staffed by Rady Children’s pediatric emergency medicine physicians from Rady Children’s Specialists. (In June 2015, U.S. News & World Report ranked Rady Children’s among the best children’s hospitals in the nation in all ten pediatric specialties the magazine surveyed.) Rancho Springs also provides the area's only OB/Emergency Department program, which gives expectant mothers 24/7 on-site access to OB/GYN physician coverage. The Childbirth Center at Rancho Springs is the largest in the region and features spacious family-friendly private suites. Rancho's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is operated by Rady Children’s.
Inland Valley Medical Center, in Wildomar, California, is a licensed 122-bed facility and is Riverside County's only designated Trauma Center and the county-designated Paramedic Base Station. It provides comprehensive emergency medical services, trauma surgery, intensive care, diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation and other services. The hospital performs more than 4,000 surgeries a year, and has an average of 2,500 Emergency Department visits per month.
