MemorialCare Saddleback Medical Center is continually honored for exceptional medical expertise that offers high-quality, compassionate care for patients and families at every stage of their lives. In 2024, we are celebrating 50 years of caring for the Orange County community.
Over the last five decades, the local community has entrusted us with care during pivotal moments — welcoming a new life, undergoing complex surgeries, or keeping them healthy from infancy through their golden years. We’re committed to serving patients with compassionate care for the next 50 years and beyond.
Our centers of excellence are renowned for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, heart disease, stroke, pulmonary disease and orthopedics; and for our leadership in emergency medicine, breast health, age-friendly care, and surgery, including robotic-assisted procedures, advanced imaging, neurosurgery and women’s health.
