A large crowd of people assembled at the main entrance of the new department to witness the historic occasion.

“We have an important responsibility to the communities we serve to carry out our mission of providing comprehensive, quality healthcare in a convenient, compassionate and cost effective manner, which this new department enables us to do,” said Virg Narbutas, CEO of West Anaheim Medical Center. “The future of healthcare is here in Anaheim today, with a full range of technologically advanced, patient friendly clinical services provided by an extremely talented medical and hospital staff.”
