Dedicated in 1971, Eisenhower Health (Eisenhower) is named in honor of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who lived part-time in the Coachella Valley during his retirement. As the Valley’s only nonprofit hospital, Eisenhower Health has provided high quality, compassionate care for more than 45 years through a full range of state-of-the-art diagnostic, treatment and emergency facilities. Eisenhower is an accredited teaching hospital, with a School of Graduate Medical Education training new physicians in the specialties of family medicine and internal medicine as well as a fellowship program in sports medicine. Eisenhower Health has established health centers in Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert and La Quinta to serve the health needs of a diverse population.
In 2017, Eisenhower Health was one of a select group of 302 health care facilities nationwide to be named Leaders in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality. Facilities awarded this title meet key criteria for equitable care, including non-discrimination policies for LGBTQ patients and employees, a guarantee of equal visitation for same-sex partners and parents, and LGBTQ health education for key staff members.
Most recently, Eisenhower Health was recognized as a Best Hospital for 2018-2019 by U.S. News & World Report and ranked #2 in the Inland Empire. Additionally, Eisenhower Health received accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for its Emergency Medicine Residency Program, and will welcome its first Emergency Medicine residents in July 2019.
