MemorialCare is a nonprofit health system with hospitals throughout Southern California. An innovator in health care delivery, MemorialCare focuses on evidence-based, best practice medicine. Our physicians and other health care professionals study health care’s best practices and work to implement them at medical centers across MemorialCare. The results are outcomes that frequently exceed state and national averages.
Advanced Technology for Medical Staff
An advantage to MemorialCare medical centers is our pledge to move forward in technology and in our commitment to offer up-to-date information about our patients fast, efficiently and seamlessly. We made a $62 million investment to implement an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) powered by Epic in each of our medical centers. We are serious about taking patient care to a higher level as we transform the next generation of care. View Annual Report
