Long Beach Press-Telegram

MemorialCare Health System, which operates hospitals and other medical facilities in Long Beach, Orange County and the South Bay, has launched a new health plan, called Seaside Health Plan.

The hospital group’s creation of Seaside, announced Tuesday, followed its November 2012 purchase of assets from Signal Hill-based Universal Care. The transaction resulted in some 14,000 former Universal Care members becoming members of Seaside as of Sept. 1, Seaside senior vice president Jay Davis said.
