With the vision to be a premier provider of innovative healthcare in North San Diego County, North County Health Services (NCHS) became a recognized Live Well San Diego partner on February 11, 2014. NCHS has 10 state-of-the-art health centers across North County that serve more than 60,000 patients each year providing quality medical, dental & women’s health services at low to no-cost and welcomes uninsured patients. In addition, NCHS offers programs and resources such as diabetes support groups, transportation to appointments and help enrolling in health care coverage, all with the goal of letting the community know - "We’re here for you."
NCHS supports Live Well San Diego through their recognition as a ‘Patient-Centered Medical Home’, a distinguished accreditation granted through the National Committee for Quality Assurance. NCHS is committed to engaging patients directly in their medical care through adopting two customer service initiatives, "Building Great Relationships," and "CARE." These initiatives improve the culture within NCHS and empower patients to make positive choices for healthy outcomes, which align with Live Well San Diego. In addition to health services (medical, dental and women’s health), NCHS actively builds and sustains partnerships that promote community health and wellness as demonstrated through participation on the North County Community Leadership Team for Live Well San Diego.
NCHS is passionate not only about healthy communities but also their staff. NCHS prides itself on providing an environment that employees can enjoy and demonstrate their knowledge and commitment to serve the community and was named one of San Diego’s “2013 Top Places to Work” by U-T San Diego.
