About Southwest Healthcare System
Southwest Healthcare System is comprised of two acute-care facilities: Inland Valley Medical Center campus, in Wildomar, California and Rancho Springs Medical Center campus, in Murrieta, California. Both hospitals are accredited by the Joint Commission.
The Rancho Springs location in Murrieta, California, is a 120-bed acute-care facility 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 2020, U.S. News & World Report ranked Rady Children’s among the best children’s hospitals in the nation in all 10 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 (Level III NICU) is the highest level NICU in the region and is operated by Rady Children’s.
The Inland Valley location 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 location performs more than 4,000 surgeries a year, and has an average of 2,500 Emergency Department visits per month.
