Radiation Oncology Services
At the beginning of March 2019, patients began receiving cancer treatment inside the newly opened Palomar Health Outpatient Center Escondido on the campus of Palomar Medical Center Escondido.
With the opening of the location, Radiation Oncology Services purchased all new equipment, including:

- A Philips CT Simulator for precise tumor detection.
