Let’s stop at nothing to make it brilliant.
UCI continues to forge ahead as one of the nation's premier public research universities. It remains fiercely dedicated to its mission of improving lives through rigorous scholarship, groundbreaking research and thoughtful public service.
UCI Medical Center leads the way as Orange County's only academic health system. For 19 consecutive years, it has been ranked as one of the nation's best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. As the principal clinical facility for UCI Health and the UCI School of Medicine, the hospital offers exceptional patient care informed by the latest discoveries and using cutting-edge treatments.
UCI is the second-largest employer in Orange County (trailing only Disneyland), contributing $5 billion annually to its economy. As a result, the region has become a powerful hub of research and innovation, fueled by the Anteater community and local partners. UCI is determined to find cures, solve problems and constantly raise the bar, stopping at nothing to build a brighter future for Orange County and the world.
