eye First he died, and then he saw the light. It was fluorescent. Mission accomplished. At 41, Jeff still had a life to live. He was young, healthy, with no history of heart problems whatsoever. But on one otherwise ordinary summer day, his heart stopped. He was clinically dead, but a team of highly skilled doctors and nurses at Mission Hospital was able to bring him back with treatment suited specifically for his unique situation. Using a state-of-the-art procedure called Hypothermia Protocol, they cooled his core temperature-virtually freezing his body in time-preserving his brain function for a full recovery. Thanks to the extraordinary efforts, individualized care and compassion of this dedicated team, Jeff walked out of the hospital 18 days later with a brand new lease on life. That was our Mission. Accomplished.
eye Before a leak becomes a flood, it's critical to have the solution in your own backyard. Mission accomplished. It may start as a trickle, but the results can be catastrophic. An aortic dissection can happen to anyone, anytime, and-unless it's caught-is usually fatal. Though it may be a rare condition, when it comes to the most effective treatments, you need your hospital to be prepared for your own unique situation. Here, we have access to options and expertise that make sense for you specifically. Expertise that doesn't exist at every hospital. Like the advanced Aortic Arch Replacement-a delicate procedure which repairs the largest vessel from the heart, the aorta. And it's performed by the only surgeon in Orange County who's made it his life's work. Because when something this critical happens to you, you need the best solutions right here in your own backyard. Mission. Accomplished.
eye Now it's possible to remove the needle without disturbing the haystack. Mission accomplished. It starts with only a few microscopic cells. But when it comes to the latest in surgical techniques for treating prostate cancer, you'll find it here at Mission Hospital. With the da Vinci S Surgical Robotic System, highly skilled surgeons are able to operate through tiny incisions with pinpoint accuracy, not only removing the cancer but also the anxiety. The result is less pain, less scarring, and a shorter hospital stay. Because we believe that treating the disease begins by treating you. Technology, respect and dignity- at Mission, that's the kind of treatment you'll always find working in plain sight. Mission. Accomplished.

target It’s 3 a.m. The phone rings, and a sleeping obstetrician is awakened. A new life is about to join the world. This story has played out countless times since the telephone was introduced over 100 years ago. But this is hardly the end of the story. In fact, it’s just the beginning.
