Kids Care Fest

Kids Care Fest

The Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD), a public agency that supports health-related community programs and services in San Diego’s East County, annually presents a Kids Care Fest. The family-oriented event that’s open to the public features free health care screenings for children.

Kids Care Fest is a free opportunity for children to receive free, potentially life-saving, health care screenings, including hearing, vision and dental screenings, from healthcare professionals. Also available at the event will be free medical information from pediatricians, dermatologists and pharmacists, along with free kids fingerprinting. Free flu shots also will be available (while supplies last).

Additional free activities will include rock climbing, inflatables and pony rides (100 pound limit for riders), along with demonstrations and displays from law enforcement, including police and fire officials. Also available will be free children’s readings books (while supplies last). The Grossmont Healthcare District was formed in 1952 to build and operate Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa. GHD serves as landlord for the hospital property and buildings on behalf of East County taxpayers. The District is governed by a five-member board of directors, each elected to four-year terms, who represent more than 500,000 people residing within the District’s 750 square miles in San Diego’s East County.
