At Loma Linda we strive to maintain our high standards of care in every area. In addition, LLUMC has identified special centers of excellence in which we feel we have unequaled expertise. These centers of excellence--the Proton Treatment Center, the Cancer Center, the International Heart Institute, the Children's Hospital, and the Behavioral Medicine Center--serve a wide range of patient needs with the highest level of quality.

LLUMC is the only Level 1 Regional Trauma Center in the Inland Empire nationally accredited by the American College of Surgeons (ACOS) for Inyo, Mono, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties. See the Department of Emergency Medicine. The Center for Joint Replacement offers hip and knee joint replacements.

At the Proton Treatment Center, physicians are empowered to treat cancer patients while greatly reducing the effect of related health concerns. Proton therapy represents the most precise form of advanced radiation treatment available for certain cancers and other diseases, yet it minimizes or alleviates harm to surrounding tissues.

The Cancer Center combines the latest technology of three different areas of oncology--surgical, medical, and radiation--with the abilities of specialists in these fields to create an integrated program for the control and eradication of cancer.

Loma Linda's International Heart Institute provides programs for patients with all types of cardiac problems and defects. An international leader in the area of transplantation, Loma Linda's heart program serves patients from all over the world.

The Children's Hospital combines many children's services under one roof. Loma Linda's pediatricians and pediatric support personnel are dedicated to providing excellent care for all children.

Loma Linda University Medical Center East Campus is a 120-bed acute care facility that focuses on serving our community and faculty physicians. We offer general medical and surgical inpatient and outpatient services in addition to urgent care, and social and preventive education programs through our special, free membership club, "Just for Seniors 55+ Club." With our highly qualified medical staff, we provide basic and specialized services in a convenient, easily accessible location.

Loma Linda's dedication to treating the whole individual is well known. The acquisition of a free-standing Behavioral Medicine Center makes it possible for us to provide outpatient and inpatient psychiatric and chemical dependency services. With programs for seniors, adults, adolescents, and children, the Loma Linda University Behavioral Medicine Center can offer a full range of care for its patients.

In addition to graduate and undergraduate schools, Loma Linda trains 500 resident physicians in 34 accredited residency programs. These resident physicians, under the direct supervision of LLU faculty physicians, may assist in your care.

The Loma Linda system encompasses more than just hospital and outpatient facilities. The LLU Center for Health Promotion offers a variety of preventive health programs such as weight loss, stress reduction, and smoking cessation. Our home health care and durable medical equipment offices can provide skilled, at-home care and equipment rentals for recovering patients. Our conveniently located pharmacies make filling your prescriptions easy.
