Mission Hospital was founded in Mission Viejo in 1971 by a group of proactive,
concerned physicians who realized the need for accessible, quality medical
care to serve the growing community. Over the decades, Mission Hospital
has continued to develop new programs and services to meet the community’s
ever changing needs. In 1993, Mission Hospital partnered with CHOC Children’s
to provide pediatric services and a year later, became a member of the
St. Joseph Health, which is a nonprofit Catholic health care ministry
founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange. In 2009, Mission Hospital
expanded its geographic footprint to include south Orange County’s
coast line by acquiring Mission Hospital Laguna Beach.

LEGACY OF CARING
St. Joseph Health is a ministry sponsored by the St. Joseph Health Ministry,
who originated in 17th century France with the unique vision of a Jesuit
priest named Jean-Pierre Médaille. He visualized an order of religious
women who would venture out into the community, seek out "the dear
neighbors" and minister to their needs.
In 1912, a small contingent of the Sisters of St. Joseph came to Eureka,
California, to establish a school. With the influenza epidemic of 1918,
the sisters temporarily abandoned their education efforts to care for
the sick. They realized the small community desperately needed a hospital.
In 1920, the sisters opened St. Joseph Hospital of Eureka.
Today the Sisters continue their work through the sponsorship of acute
care hospitals, home health care, rehabilitation programs, primary care
clinics and many community outreach and wellness programs. In each community
we touch, we reach out to care for the poor and vulnerable.
