Breaking Ground New Location

Comprehensive community health center will provide access to primary and specialty physicians, x-ray, laboratory, mammography and other services—all in one convenient location.

MemorialCare has just broken ground to begin construction on its new 26,000 square foot, comprehensive health center in Rancho Mission Viejo scheduled to open in summer of 2019. During construction, patients have access to an interim Health Center in Rancho Mission Viejo and Urgent Care Center in San Juan Capistrano.

Comprehensive Health Services in One Location
In partnership with MemorialCare Saddleback Medical Center and MemorialCare Medical Group, the new location will offer a wide range of primary care and specialty care services. These include family physicians, pediatricians, specialty physicians, nurses, medical assistants and support per¬sonnel. Additional patient offerings include on-site x-ray and laboratory services, breast screening mammography, cardiology, and more, making it an easily accessible, convenient, one-stop health center to serve those living and working in surrounding communities.

“Rancho Mission Viejo and MemorialCare share a common passion for achieving, sustaining and improving the quality of life and health, which is why we are proud to be the exclusive medical provider for this incredible community,” explains Mark Schafer, MD, CEO of MemorialCare Medical Foundation. “We’re excited to begin construction of what will be a state-of-the-art, custom designed health center capable of providing comprehensive medical care to the community all under one roof.”
