In response to COVID-19, our Radiation Oncology team at the MemorialCare Cancer Institute at Saddleback Medical Center has implemented extensive safety protocols to protect our patients and staff. We want to assure you that safety remains our top priority, and we have the following precautions in place:
We look forward to caring for you.
Saddleback Medical Center has been providing cancer services since the hospital opened in 1974. Over that time, we have developed exceptional expertise in cancer care.
In our commitment to excellence, the patient’s experience and outcomes are our highest priorities. How a patient feels about the healthcare environment and the medical team-as well as their emotional well-being-can have a dramatic impact on maintaining or regaining health. That’s why we focus on the whole patient-body, mind and spirit.
Our Cancer Institute is the best in its class. We hope you will make it your personal resource for cancer prevention and screening needs. And while we hope you never need us for diagnosis or treatment services, we are ready to provide you with the very best care available as you make the journey back to health.
