Fallbrook Healthcare District (FHD), a local special district, joined Live Well San Diego as a recognized partner on April 23, 2015 after a unanimous vote from the Board of Directors on April 8th.
FHD became a Live Well San Diego partner organization because of its long standing commitment to improve the health and well-being of the communities they serve through programs and services that promote health and wellness including physical activity; alcohol and drug abuse prevention; nutrition; safety; immunization at all ages; therapies for the disabled; access to food; senior citizen services; transportation for medical services; injury prevention; health screenings and fairs; as well as access to medical, mental and dental health services.
FHD is a single function, non-enterprise, independent government agency serving residents of the Fallbrook, Bonsall, Rainbow and De Luz areas of northern San Diego County. FHD was originally formed in 1950, as a Hospital District, to build and operate Fallbrook Hospital. In 1998, it re-organized to become the Fallbrook Healthcare District. Today, the mission of the District with its’ five member elected Board is to promote the health of the people of the District and enhance access to sustainable quality healthcare services.
