At St. Jude Medical Center, we are proud to serve the healthcare and medical needs of people throughout Fullerton, California and the surrounding areas. If you are anticipating that you will be a patient at our facility, we are committed to providing you with the information that you need to set your mind at ease so that you can be more informed about your upcoming stay. Regardless of the specific topics that you currently have questions about, you can rest assured knowing that we have the answer for you. Some of the information available on our side addresses the following topics:

Advance Care Planning
At our facility, we know the importance of making plans should you reach the end of your life. For this reason, we make it easy for you to make the important decisions about your wishes and to specify the care that you want and the care that you don't. This can be useful in situation in which you are unable to make decisions, such as if you are in a coma, or if you are unable to speak.

Billing Information
We have found that much of the stress about being a patient can stem from confusion about the billing process. We have therefore simplified this and provided all necessary information regarding Medicare, HMO / PPO / POS and others. If you have further questions about billing, do not hesitate to contact our Financial Counselors at 714-992-3000 extensions 3825 or 5110.

Complaint Resolution and Grievances
While we hope that patients and visitors will never have any issues, we recognize that there are situations that might result in questions, concerns or complaints. If you are looking to resolve problems or address any issues that you might be struggling with, we encourage you to contact a patient relations specialist anytime between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Monday and Friday at (714) 992-3000, ext. 3749. For after hour questions, please direct them towards the change nurse or nursing supervisor at (714) 871-3280.

Condition H for Help
Family and friends may recognize the subtle changes in a loved one which could signify an emergency before it becomes apparent to a healthcare specialist. Should a patient, family or friend notice a significant change or have serious concerns they should call our emergency call line at extension 2158 on all hospital phones to initiate Condition H.

By providing interpretation for a wide variety of languages, including Sign Language, we strive to make sure that your stay with us is as comfortable as possible by providing efficient and open communication.

Joint Commission Statement
We at St. Jude are proud to say that we are accredited by the Joint Commission – this means that over the years, we have complied with standards of organization, patient care and safety. As we constantly strive to push ourselves to new limits, we have invited a full survey of our center by The Joint Commission. To us, this is just another way in which we can ensure the highest quality of medical care.
