Palomar Health board election

Please read my views about my run for Palomar Healthcare Board in the latest news from Pomerado News!

Laurie Edwards-Tate, age not given, is a San Marcos resident who has lived in the district for more than 25 years. She is married, has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from National University and master’s in human resource management and development from Chapman University. Her campaign website is at www.edwards-tatecampaign.com.

Edwards-Tate said she wants to serve on the board because of her positive experience a couple years ago when a family member was admitted to Palomar Hospital. She was impressed by the staff, their care and the facility. “When the opportunity to run for the board of Palomar Healthcare and contribute my years of healthcare experience on behalf of a system I love and respect I became a candidate.”

She said the district’s three greatest challenges and her solutions are:

  • Changing demographics of constituents, while having the ability to continuously provide the highest quality and most responsive care to an ever-growing population. — “I will endeavor to ensure constituents’ healthcare challenges and needs within the framework of my role as member of the board, ensuring that policy and other decisions I make are client-centered and best serve the needs of our community.”
  • Maintaining fiscal solvency and stability. — “I will ensure that all policy and other decisions I make will make fiscal sense and be fiscally sound. Palomar Healthcare … must continue its key role of being a premier hospital system in the North County region including the entire district it represents.”
  • Meeting today’s healthcare challenges, especially the impact of federal government policies on all hospital systems, which includes their initiatives to save dollars by imposing penalties for hospital readmissions. — “I will encourage community outreach, education and partnerships which enrich our district in a helpful, collaborative way … (and) actively seek cost-effective alternatives to some pressing problems in healthcare which will reduce readmissions, reduce costs and maintain a thriving hospital system without compromising quality client-centered care.”

Edwards-Tate said voters should select her because “As a native San Diegan and long-held North County resident, wife, and daughter I will contribute my decades of health care experience as a well-respected healthcare executive and industry leader for the benefit of you, your family and the continued success, development and stability of Palomar Healthcare.”

Dear Friends,

In the upcoming months, a lot of young people will be deciding where they’ll go to college. Others are figuring out how to finance the rest of their education. So, we have created a short list of available grants and scholarships to assist you.

My wife and I are the proud parents of two college graduates and we know first-hand how expensive college can be these days. That’s why we want you to have this valuable information.

A word to the wise: these scholarships and grants have a wide range of eligibility requirements and deadline dates, so please be sure to read them thoroughly and act quickly. We have arranged them so that the ones with upcoming deadlines are at the top, but a number of the links included list multiple opportunities with deadlines that vary.
