Expansion Continues at Eisenhower!

One thing in life is certain...change!  This is true at Eisenhower Medical Center these days. In continuing to serve the changing health care needs of our region by providing excellence in patient care with supportive education and research, this spring brings news of expansion of two exciting new Eisenhower projects.

At the beginning of April, Eisenhower will open its third Health Center in Palm Springs —  Eisenhower Health Center at Plaza del Sol, located at the corner of South Palm Canyon Drive and Belardo Road. A multispecialty clinic, this facility will be home to six physicians, initially opening with two gastroenterologists (GI) and a primary care physician. Committed to providing quality health care to our Palm Springs neighbors, Eisenhower continues to invest resources in the community.

In 2009, Eisenhower began making plans to become a teaching hospital and establish a residency program for primary care physicians. With great anticipation, Eisenhower learned last week that that it has filled 100 percent of the spots in the hospital’s first ever residency program match — just four percent of community hospitals starting multiple, new, medium to large size programs actually fill all their available slots in a residency program’s first year. Read more about the residency program and student match process below.
