At UCI Health, we don’t just practice medicine, we create it. Now, we are writing the next chapter for healthcare in Orange County. With the UCI Medical Center in Irvine, UCI Health will bring our patients unparalleled expertise, leading-edge treatments and the finest evidence-based care that only an academic medical system can offer.
The 800,000-square-foot medical campus will be anchored by a state-of-the-art hospital, which will offer 24-hour emergency care and personalized cancer treatments, including hundreds of clinical trials from our NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center. Our world-renowned experts will also deliver exceptional care in other specialties, such as digestive diseases, neurosciences and orthopaedics, all powered by the University of California. We stop at nothing to build a healthier tomorrow.

Healthcare’s next chapter
At UCI Health, our promise is always to advance the care that improves the health and well-being of our community. We proudly honor this commitment with our planned expansion into the rapidly growing region of coastal Orange County.
Building a healthier tomorrow
UCI Health will be breaking ground in winter 2021-2022 for a new medical pavilion on UCI’s North Campus — the first phase in what is envisioned as a large medical complex and hospital to serve residents of Irvine, Newport Beach and south Orange County.
The UCI Health Outpatient Pavilion, to be located at the intersection of Jamboree Road and Campus Drive, will be home to the Center for Children’s Health, adult specialty care, urgent care and other much-needed services for the entire family. Scheduled for completion in late 2022, this state-of-the-art location is the first of a larger health offering, which will give residents greater accessibility to UCI’s world-class physicians, multidisciplinary care and university-backed clinical research.
World-class care near you
Convenience matters. We are making it easier for you to get the best care possible, while shortening your travel time. The UCI Medical Center in Irvine will provide south Orange County residents with access to a 24-hour emergency room; leading-edge cancer treatments and clinical trials from our NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center; and exceptional care by world-renowned experts in specialties, such neurosciences, orthopaedics, and digestive health.
The power of academic medicine
The union of discovery, teaching and healing has enabled UCI Health to pioneer new therapies and techniques that have been adopted by institutions across the nation. It gives us the expertise to diagnose and treat exceedingly rare conditions and diseases, always with the least invasive methods possible. Most important, it means that you and your family have access to the highest quality, knowledge-driven care.
Unifying research, training and care
The new medical complex — combined with the current construction of the Susan & Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences and the Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing — will be the realization of a long-held dream to unify medical services, research and training on the university campus, and a complement to the services offered at the flagship UCI Medical Center campus in Orange.
