Orange County Register

When south Orange County residents are taken with life-threatening injuries to the nearest trauma center, they will likely arrive at Mission Hospital Medical Center, where Almaas Shaikh, 39, runs the operations.

“I am thrilled and humbled … to run the trauma center for the community that raised me,” said Shaikh, who took over the position as trauma medical director about seven months ago. Mission Hospital Medical Center is one of three trauma centers in the county.
