About the area The Orange County area is one of the most sought-after communities on the west coast. Located along the Pacific Ocean, the weather enables year-round outdoor recreation, and there's easy access to great cuisine, the arts, professional sports, and culturally diverse events. It's close to big cities to its north and south, but without the traffic and other issues that big cities present. The area has a great variety of housing options: near the ocean, in open space amongst foothills, and in urban settings.
Centrally located just southeast of downtown Los Angeles, the Downey service area is a hub both for quality housing and a range of activities. Staff members live in the immediate Downey area but also in Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Orange County, affording them all the fine dining, entertainment, and cultural opportunities that Southern California has to offer.
Working here SCPMG Orange County is characterized by a deeply ingrained culture of teamwork, collaboration, and collegiality that cuts across specialties and departments. Driven by a dynamic, transparent leadership team, physician involvement is a key focus, enabling constant improvement and fueling a desire to sustainably provide affordable, high-quality care. Our deep clinical talent pool affords a wealth of consultative support from specialists and subspecialists. We place a strong emphasis on physician wellness: protecting our physicians, mentally and physically, is viewed as critical for reaching our goals. Opportunities for connecting abound, through formal and informal events and programs, and special events that are unique to Orange County. We actively help new hires to acclimate, integrate, and ultimately, bond--thereby furthering physician involvement and clinical expertise, and creating a breeding ground for the next leaders.
Infused with a spirit of teamwork and collaboration, SCPMG Downey has a strong culture of safety--emphasizing both patient safety as well as caregivers' ability to raise concerns and have a voice. Our leadership is dedicated to accessibility and a flat hierarchy, building trust between physicians and ancillary staff. There is a significant focus on innovation--Downey was the region's first medical center to perform same-day total joint surgery--and on efficiency, improving workflows across the medical center and ancillary offices. At the same time, wellness--both physical and mental--is emphasized, with regular opportunities to dine out, socialize, and exercise together. With a high level of tertiary care, one of the region's largest NICU's, and an OB and anesthesia staff comprised of full physicians, Downey delivers exemplary service to its diverse, high-risk-profile patient population.
