Kaiser Permanente Surgery Day 10.7.17

AccessOC and Kaiser Permanente Orange County hosted their 16th Surgery Day together and it was a success! Overall, 43 patients were served and doctors performed 41 surgeries. With a team of approximately 110 doctors and medical volunteers, there were 11 general surgeries, 12 eye surgeries, and 18 colonoscopies. AccessOC would like to thank Kaiser Permanente Orange County - Irvine Medical Center and their staff for their support and hard work in making it a successful Surgery Day! We also appreciate photographers Lia Stude and Albert Halim for capturing such memorable moments. This event would not have been possible without our medical and community volunteers’ incredible efforts!

Volunteer Appreciation Cruise

Medical and community volunteers play an important role at AccessOC and assist in so many ways. To express our appreciation, we hosted a 10th Year Anniversary Volunteer Recognition event on November 4, 2017 on a Hornblower Cruise ship in Newport Beach. Our guests of honor included doctors, nurses, hospital administrators and community volunteers. All guests received a certificate of appreciation, along with a thank you bag, for the amazing work they contributed in making an incredible impact on patients' lives. AccessOC would like to give special thanks to the companies that donated gifts prizes that some lucky guests won including Disneyland tickets and Knott’s Berry Farm tickets. Special thanks as well to Simply the Cupcake Store and Glee Donuts & Burgers for generously donating desserts for our event. We appreciate photographer Lia Stude at Werkit Photo, for taking pictures at the event. AccessOC is truly grateful for the time and dedication of our volunteers throughout these past ten years and looks forward to more years of building bridges to health.
