Downey Medical Center
Infused with a spirit of teamwork and collaboration, 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.
