Leadership Team

A message from the CEO

Clayton_Kent_web siteWelcome to Los Alamitos Medical Center. On behalf of the physicians, hospital leadership, nurses, technicians, social workers, and all of the ‘behind the scenes’ staff of your hospital care … it is our privilege to provide quality patient care with unrelenting attention to clinical excellence, patient safety and an unparalleled passion and commitment to assure the very best health care for those we serve.

 Your hospital stay will involve many caregivers starting with your first point of contact, our admitting staff and volunteers. You’ll also meet many of our nursing, dietary, environmental services, and pharmacy staff, all with a common goal: To be the hospital of choice for patients, physicians and employees through an environment of mutual respect and the delivery of exemplary patient care.

Since 1968, we have cared for members of our own families, colleagues, and community members, and are committed to earning the trust of our community through continually recognizing and responding to the health care needs as we exceed our patients’ expectations through a culture of caring, compassion, quality, innovation and excellence in all that we do.

We continue to expand our services and are pleased with the advancements of our orthopedic, neurosciences and cardiovascular services. Our Cancer Center patients have access to some of the most-advanced cancer care from board-certified UCLA Health physicians providing radiation oncology services at our hospital.

Los Alamitos Medical Center has a range of health care services, but 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.

Thank you for choosing Los Alamitos Medical Center.
