Welcome to AccessOC, Southern California!

Our Mission

With the support of our community, we improve the health of the underserved by coordinating and providing access to high quality specialty care.

Who we are

We are a medical nonprofit organization in Orange County that connects the medically uninsured/underinsured who are in need of surgery to volunteer specialists who are willing to donate their expertise. We believe that every person in our community should be healthy, productive and have access to medical care.

Our Volunteers

Our work is made possible thanks to the thousands of medical and community volunteers who donate their time and talent to help the medically underserved in our community. To date, we have coordinated the donation of over 600 surgeries- amounting to over $7,000,000 in saved healthcare costs. Thanks to the collaboration between health care providers in Orange County and AccessOC, patients are able receive the care they would otherwise not have access to. This is why we do what we do!
