Enhanced Care for the Corona Area
Corona Regional Medical Center has formed a comprehensive affiliation with UC Irvine Health to enhance the depth and variety of specialty healthcare services available to the residents of Corona and nearby communities.
Several key specialty services supported by UC Irvine's clinical and research expertise have opened since the affiliation was announced in late 2014, including a stroke telemedicine unit and more.
Future plans include a major hospital expansion which will include an emergency room (ER) that will double the size of the existing ER. The two institutions will also explore ways to bring the resources of UC Irvine Health’s National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center to Corona.
Stroke Telemedicine Unit
Minutes count when treating a stroke. Corona Regional and UC Irvine Health formed a stroke telemedicine unit that allows patients to receive remote care from UC Irvine’s highly trained neurologists. Combining Corona Regional’s Joint Commission-certified stroke program with the resources of UC Irvine Health gives the community instant access to the region’s greatest concentration of fellowship-trained stroke neurologists and surgeons.
UC Irvine Cardiology Clinic
Through Corona Regional Medical Center’s affiliation with UC Irvine Health, diagnostic and preventive cardiac services are now available at the community hospital. The UC Irvine Cardiology Clinic at Corona Regional offers patients a variety of tests designed to detect cardiac issues. Some of the diagnostic tests include stress testing (echo, treadmill and nuclear testing) and cardiac catheterization.
