Message from the CEO 

Welcome from the CEO...

It is my privilege to welcome you to Los Alamitos Medical Center and our website.

Los Alamitos Medical Center is much more than an acute care hospital. We are a team of health care professionals who specialize in various programs and clinical services - but first and foremost, we are care-givers. Our dedicated nurses, technicians, social workers, and other personnel are here to provide you with excellent care in a safe, compassionate environment. We care for members of our own families, colleagues, and community members and we want to earn your trust and confidence when it comes to your health.

Los Alamitos Medical Center has been serving the community since 1968 - growing and changing while navigating a sophisticated health care landscape. We provide emergency services, inpatient and outpatient care, and numerous other health services.

Some recent changes to our developing medical campus include a new parking structure with over 1000 parking spaces and a medical office building that holds physician offices and MedPost Urgent Care (coming in early 2015). Patient access to selected medical records, a discharge lobby, and two new Catheterization Labs (Cath Lab) are also part of our growth endeavors. The Cath Lab project will allow us to offer our patients world-class, interventional resources spanning the spectrum of nearly all medical specialties. This allows us to expand our neurology and cardiology offerings. We are expecting the final phase of this project to culminate in the first quarter of 2015.

In addition to technology upgrades, our quality indicators are a great source of pride. We have been honored and recognized by The Joint Commission, CIGNA, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, American Heart Association, and American Stroke Association, to name a few. We are one of only six hospitals in the state chosen for a Senate Bill pilot program for our catheterization lab (heart services) and we were among the first hospitals nationwide to earn complete accreditation for all imaging services.

On behalf of our employees, physicians, and volunteers, thank you for choosing Los Alamitos Medical Center.
