Mission and History
You're the Reason We're Here
At St. Joseph Heritage Medical Group, we believe in putting you first. Our physicians value the relationships they have with each of their patients, and our goal is to create a healthcare partnership in which you're an active participant in prevention and health improvement. By working together, we can help you get the most out of your healthcare benefits and all the resources that we offer.
The name St. Joseph has special significance in Orange County. For more than 79 years that name has signified the most important values in healthcare: Dignity, Service, Excellence and Justice. These are the values of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, who founded the renowned St. Joseph Hospital in Orange. And those same sustaining values are keystones for the physicians and specialists of St. Joseph Heritage Medical Group.
St. Joseph Heritage Medical Group was founded in 1964 as Yorba Park Medical Group, but in 1999 we changed our name to reflect our affiliation with St. Joseph Hospital. We are a primary care medical group of approximately 45 physicians and medical providers, with a referral panel of over 200 other healthcare professionals and specialists. And we contract with a large number of health plans to serve your needs.
