I’MAGINE: 2016–2018


Saddleback Medical Center has embarked on a three-year space redesign project that will shift areas of the hospital, bring in advanced medical equipment, and create additional private patient rooms.

These improvements will enhance the patient-family experience, creating a more comfortable, healing environment while benefiting from modern medical technology.

The main areas planned for renovation are the surgical services areas, which include the perioperative and surgical nursing units:
