Caring for all of our
Our community’s health is always top of mind and at the heart of Orange Coast Medical Center’s mission. For the past 29 years, we’ve been here for the birth of your children, your illnesses, your essential surgeries and all of your outpatient service needs. As we move forward, we do so carefully and responsibly with the safety of our patients, staff and physicians always as our top priority. For your good health, it’s vitally important that you seek medical care and treatment when necessary and appropriate — your health can’t wait.
Our Emergency Department team is highly trained and experienced in caring for all patients, including those who need to receive immediate care for heart attacks, severe injuries or any other emergent medical injuries or illnesses. We have taken extra measures during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the continued safety, exceptional care and well-being of all our patients and staff, with a special area to treat patients coming in with suspected COVID-19 and an area designated specifically for noninfectious disease patients.
Throughout our hospital and outpatient care areas, we have taken extra precautions to safeguard your health and the health of our staff.
Some ways we have done this include:
Observing social distancing, including spaced out seating in our waiting areas and properly spaced out floor markings in areas where lines form
Screening individuals at all of our medical center entrances for symptoms, taking their temperature, and ensuring a mask is worn before allowing entry into the facility
Ensuring all of our clinical staff members wear face masks and abide by all personal protective equipment guidelines, in addition to stringent compliance with hand hygiene (washing hands regularly and applying hand sanitizer before entering a patient room)
Adhering to strict compliance with disinfecting and cleaning of equipment and spaces across all of the hospital and outpatient care areas
For non-emergent medical conditions or injuries, we encourage you to take advantage of other services offered by MemorialCare, including setting up a virtual appointment with your doctor, speaking with an advice nurse over the phone, or visiting a MemorialCare urgent care location, if necessary.

Newport Breast Center
MemorialCare is dedicated to minimizing the impact of breast cancer and expanding accessible breast care in our community. Now open, our newest MemorialCare Breast Center in Newport Beach offers a beautiful and convenient location outside a hospital setting. The new Center offers many services that women seek for their breast care, using leading-edge technology such as 3D tomosynthesis mammography, dedicated breast ultrasound, and minimally invasive breast biopsy.
Staffed exclusively by breast-dedicated radiologists, the new location will be led by Gary M. Levine, M.D., medical director of MemorialCare Breast Centers and a nationwide leader in breast care.
"Breast screening should be a regular part of a woman's preventive health regimen," said Dr. Levine. "We cannot yet reliably prevent breast cancer, however, early detection through regular screening mammography dramatically improves a woman’s chance of surviving breast cancer while at the same time frequently allowing less invasive treatment.”
