Message from Mission Hospital Laguna Beach
10/20/2014  At Mission Hospital, patient safety is the highest priority, so we are constantly evaluating our facilities and processes to ensure patients experience the most compassionate care in the safest, most advanced setting. Anytime we identify an area of concern, we take immediate action. Out of an abundance of caution, Mission Hospital temporarily postponed elective surgeries. Our urgent surgeries, as well as our trauma and emergency department are up and running and serving patients. The decision to postpone elective surgeries was a preventative measure but by doing so, we recognize that this action has caused not only inconvenience but also concern for the communities we serve.
