SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

San Clemente, Dana Point, San Juan Capistrano and Mission Viejo—including a very large group of citizens called Save San Clemente Hospital Foundation—all oppose MemorialCare’s proposal to replace the current hospital and its emergency room with an urgent care facility.
All one has to do (to see the widespread opposition) is drive around San Clemente and Capistrano Beach and see all the signs in front of our residents’ homes opposing the closure.
The question begs to be asked: Does MemorialCare actually care about anyone?
