Providence takes immense pride in its Orange County family of organizations, as our history in the region dates back nearly 100 years, when the founding Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange opened one of the area’s first modern hospitals. Today, Providence St. Jude Medical Center, Providence St. Joseph Hospital of Orange, Providence Mission Hospital, Hoag and Providence Medical Groups work together to provide nationally recognized, leading-edge care to all of Orange County. However, Hoag has recently taken legal steps to leave our affiliation, which we oppose on the basis that this would lead to fragmentation and decreased quality of care in the region.
