Irvine, Calif., Aug. 18, 2020 — UCI Health is pleased to announce the opening of its latest Newport Beach location, which is dedicated to preventing disease and managing health by considering all aspects of a patient’s mind, body and spirit. UCI Health-Newport Beach is the first to offer a comprehensive model of science-based medicine combined with a philosophy of care that makes use of all therapies and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.

“At UCI Health, we make a daily commitment to stop at nothing to meet and exceed the expectations of every member of our community,” said Chad T. Lefteris, CEO of UCI Health. “Our multidisciplinary clinical care teams provide world-class primary and specialty care driven by the discovery and innovation of Orange County’s only university health system.”

“UCI Health is built to advance knowledge that improves patient health and wellness,” Lefteris said.

Advances in medicine are made every day. Community-based health providers treat patients within the standards of care, while academic health systems like UCI Health conduct the research that improves these standards. For example, UCI Health integrative health faculty physicians publish research into the effect of diet, mood and stress on specific conditions that they then translate into cutting-edge patient care.

UCI Health-Newport Beach is located at 2161 San Joaquin Hills Road, Newport Beach, on the corner of San Joaquin Hills Road and Avocado Avenue.

“We take a balanced approach to wellness,” said Shaista Malik, MD, PhD, associate vice chancellor for integrative health at the Susan and Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences. “Integrative health means that when we care for you, we take into account every aspect of your life — your health history, lifestyle, stressors and other factors — to restore your well-being and quality of life.”

This whole-person approach allows UCI Health caregivers to understand each patient’s unique circumstances and determine the most appropriate treatments and therapies, Malik said.

“Our providers work together to develop treatment plans that adapt to your specific needs, to help you live a healthy and balanced life,” she added.
