We Made the List! UC Irvine Medical Center is one of “America’s Best Hospitals”

What an honor! For the 16th straight year, UC Irvine Medical Center has made the U.S. News and World Report’s list of “America’s Best Hospitals”. University of California, Irvine Medical Center received the honor of ranking 5th in the greater Orange County area in addition to being the 10th ranked hospital in all of California. UCI Plastic Surgery is proud to be a part of the UC Irvine Health community—a collaboration of specialties, comprised of a team of physicians, nurses, researchers, educators, and students.

What this Honor Means for You

  • UC Irvine health is at the forefront of medical practices and advancements. Priding ourselves in innovation, our practices are grounded in the best medical and scientific knowledge. We are firm believers in the importance of continuing medical education—including industry standards, patient safety, and new advances in treatment options. At all times, we strive to provide our patients with leading-edge technologies and treatments.
  • UC Irvine Medical Center is the only university-based care provider in Orange County. Partnering with the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of California, Irvine, UCI Plastic Surgery is home to a prestigious residency program in which our team of surgeons educates and trains Southern California’s future plastic surgeons. The apple of our eye—our most recent residents graduated this past June.
  • UC Irvine Health’s comprehensive approach to medical care and our full spectrum medical team ensures that you have access to the best medical care and facilities.
