UCI Health is building a new, world-class medical complex on the northern edge of the UCI campus. UCI Health — Irvine will be the nation’s first all-electric, carbon-neutral medical center in the U.S. and will bring premier-quality, leading-edge care to the coastal and southern regions of Orange County. The new medical complex will be anchored by a 144-bed acute care hospital that will offer 24-hour emergency services and personalized care in several specialties, including cancer, digestive disease, neuroscience and orthopaedics. Adjacent to the hospital will be the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center and Ambulatory Care and the Joe C. Wen & Family Center for Advanced Care, home to the Chao Family Gastrointestinal Clinic, the Center for Children & Health and The Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
As part of Orange County’s only academic health system, the UCI Health — Irvine medical complex will bring unparalleled expertise, research-driven care and clinical trials available nowhere else in the region to more patients than ever before.
Associate Vice Chancellor, UCI Health Advancement
Our 144-bed acute care hospital, scheduled to open in 2025, will provide comprehensive care and emergency services for patients with specialized service lines devoted to cancer, digestive disease, neuroscience and orthopaedics.
Located adjacent to the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center & Ambulatory Care facility, the hospital will serve as both a critical second site for inpatient cancer services and the ultimate destination for the new UCI Health blood and bone marrow transplantation program – the first program of its kind in Orange County and one of only 11 programs in California.
Orange County residents in the southern and coastal areas will have easier access to the life-enhancing therapies, advanced innovations, leading experts and complex procedures that are found only at the world’s foremost research and academic health institutions. Patients will have early access to promising new treatments through hundreds of ongoing clinical trials, including early-phase trials. To enhance the patient experience, please consider investing in our specialty services areas.
The Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center & Ambulatory Care facility is expected to open its doors in 2024. As a vital part of the UCI Health — Irvine medical complex, the cancer center will magnify its regional impact so more patients will have access to the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center based in Orange County – and one of only 53 such centers in the nation.
Building on the strengths of the UCI Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center in Orange, our renowned experts will continue to fight cancer on all fronts by integrating research, education and prevention and offering patients the most advanced diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative options available. With your support, patients will benefit from internationally known experts in the many different forms of cancer, from true multidisciplinary cancer care, and from access to clinical trials of the latest drugs, devices and interventions.
In spring 2024, the Joe C. Wen & Family Center for Advanced Care will be the first building to open at the UCI Health — Irvine medical complex. This five-story outpatient facility on Jamboree Road will offer
adult and pediatric specialty care, urgent care and comprehensive laboratory and radiology imaging services.
The Center for Children’s Health, a major part of the facility, will improve the value of healthcare delivery for children and their families by consolidating all pediatric services in one easily accessible venue that offers unparalleled continuity of care from birth through early adulthood, with an emphasis on children with chronic conditions. The Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders will provide hope and help to individuals living with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
With your support, children and adults will benefit from one-stop outpatient healthcare.
