Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Public health challenges within the lower socio-economic communities served by San Ysidro Health include chronic disease management, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure. Just these examples present social and economic challenges for the greater San Diego community. The cost of care for unmanaged chronic disease is significant and the impact on our community emergency rooms and hospitals is considerable. San Ysidro Health and the interventions provided through our patient centered medical home (PCMH) health model aim to increase patient compliance and overall health outcomes to reduce that pressure and to create healthier communities.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of San Ysidro Health is to provide our patients with the highest quality, needs assessed, comprehensive health services to create better health outcomes and to reduce health disparities in historically underserved communities. We can accomplish our mission because of our focus on prevention, keeping patients healthy and out of the emergency rooms. We focus on children, ensuring they thrive and are school ready. We support our seniors, allowing them to age in place with dignity in the communities they know.

San Ysidro Health has a dynamic strategic plan that outlines specific benchmarks and objectives to be met throughout the plan's life-cycle. By monitoring and adjusting activities based on the objectives set out in the plan, we are assured our efforts are outcome focused.

San Ysidro Health has a creative and dynamic leadership team committed to ensuring better health outcomes in the communities we serve. Our plans are clearly communicated to the entire organization, helping each team member to understand the critical role they play in meeting our overall objectives. We employ nearly 2,000 dedicated staff operating in state-of-the-art facilities. We promote workforce development, including a family practice residency program, dental practice residency, and actively recruit practitioners committed to working in under served communities.

San Ysidro Health has been locally and nationally recognized for excellence in programming and program outcomes, including regularly being ranked in the first and second UDS quartiles related to high blood pressure management, colorectal cancer screening and tobacco use intervention. San Ysidro Health is committed to ensuring all relevant measures are all ranking in the top quartile and are developing internal structures to assure success.
