Residents should remember to seek immediate health care or call 9-1-1 if experiencing a medical emergency, County officials said today, emphasizing it’s safe to visit a hospital when in need.
“I want to assure Orange County residents that our hospitals are fully operational and that it is safe to seek emergency medical care for themselves and their loved ones,” said County Health Officer Dr. Nichole Quick.
Residents are invited to take the free “Stop the Bleed” classes Mission Hospital is hosting through November.
Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, this class teaches you proper bleeding-control techniques including how to use your hands, dressings and tourniquets to stop severe bleeding.
KNBC TV reporter Vikki Vargas was in Mission Viejo today filming a story about our City’s second “Stop the Bleeding” training. Our City is proactively working to expand the Stop the Bleed program through Mission Hospital’s Trauma Center to train, equip and empower school administrators, teachers, staff and community bystanders to stop active and life-threatening bleeding.
Residents are invited to participate in the annual Light Up a Life tree lighting celebration to honor and remember friends, loved ones or caregivers while supporting hospice and palliative care services at Mission Hospital.
The event is at 5 p.m. on Sunday, December 3 at the Mission Conference Center located at 26726 Crown Valley Parkway.
Construction is expected to begin in January on Mission Hospital’s new state-of-the-art cancer center that will be located on a portion of The Shops at Mission Viejo.
Developer NCA Real Estate and Mission Hospital recently closed a deal after negotiating for months on the 109,000-square-foot medical office building next to Medical Center Road and the hospital campus the City’s Planning and Transportation Commission approved in summer 2015.
If you would like to serve those who are sick and less fortunate, Mission Hospital is looking for dedicated individuals to volunteer at both the Mission Viejo and Laguna Beach locations.
Research has proven that volunteering provides a variety of benefits including personal satisfaction and fulfillment, physical and emotional wellbeing, and connections to new friends.
The Mission Viejo Library is teaming up with Mission Hospital to raise awareness about mental health.
In honor of May as Mental Health Matters Month and the “Each Mind Matters Movement,” the library at 100 Civic Center has created a space and resource area for people who need help or know someone else struggling with mental health issues.
The dedicated space is in the first alcove past the check-out desk. Each Mind Matters encourages people to start conversations, listen openly and support a loved one with mental health challenges.
