Healthcare is a growing industry and Orange is home to the largest concentration of medical facilities serving Orange County’s diverse population of over 3.1 million people. The epicenter of this health corridor is the intersection of Main Street and La Veta Avenue where Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and St. Joseph Hospital of Orange are located. These two hospitals along with UC Irvine Medical Center (located in Uptown Orange) are nationally recognized hospitals with state of the art facilities. Radiating out from this intersection are a number of medical offices, care facilities, and boutique clinics that provide an array of specialized medical services. This concentration of facilities, along with the well-paying jobs that they bring, provides opportunities for further healthcare development and the retail, dining, and housing development needed to support it.
