Helping Laguna Beach & Mission Viejo Stay Healthy
Mission Hospital has an established history of community service for the
residents of south Orange County. We are committed to improving the health
and quality of life of the people we serve. In the past five years, we
have allocated more than $120 million to community benefit activities.
A cornerstone of the work we do is through partnerships, working with
others “of like minds” to create change. We work with dozens
of local non-profits, faith based organizations, civic leaders and local
residents to understand and respond to the needs of the community.
Each Mind Matters
When it comes to health, peoples’ minds deserve the same attention
as their bodies. That’s why Mission Hospital is activating Each
Mind Matters, California’s Mental Health Movement, in south Orange
County. The statewide initiative was created to unite millions of individuals
who share a vision of improved mental health and equality for all.
