Six California Cities: Which Healthcare Economies Are Thriving?

Business Wire

Riverside/San Bernardino

The Riverside/San Bernardino region encompasses a vast geographic area, creating significant health care access challenges for residents. Most of the region’s hospitals are concentrated near the major population centers. Hospitals in Riverside and San Bernardino are viewed as competitive, but some collaborate in an effort to keep patients from seeking their care in neighboring Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego Counties.

The region’s health care safety net is anchored by two county hospitals. Both counties maintain their own hospitals, which are major tertiary care centers as well as mainstays for the safety net, but differ in the way outpatient care is provided. In Riverside, the county is the key provider of primary care for low-income residents, but in San Bernardino primary care is mostly delivered by private organizations.
