More than 50 years ago, the community joined forces and raised funds to build a much needed hospital. Today, MemorialCare Saddleback Medical Center Foundation continues to partner with individuals, corporations and foundations to raise funds for capital improvements, technologically advanced medical equipment and patient services and programs. Since 1972, the Foundation has raised more than $263 million to benefit Saddleback Medical Center.
