City weighs option of opening its own hospital if emergency room closes
Orange County Register

The looming possibility that MemorialCare Health System may shutter its San Clemente hospital and emergency room has led city officials to look at another option: their own, brand-new hospital.

City Manager James Makshanoff announced last week that city staff is trying to identify a site for a new hospital and emergency room on land the city owns along the path of Avenida La Pata, a road being extended to link San Clemente with San Juan Capistrano in 2016.
