H.H. Chao Comprehensive Digestive Disease Center (CDDC) Grand Opening
October 14, 2019
– When we envision the
Comprehensive Digestive Disease Center we envision a place where patients can experience healing and hope. – And with this new center, this will allow us to take patient care to the next level. – This is exactly where patients in Orange County
need to come for their care so that they can get it in one place, with one group of physicians, under one roof. – We at the center see patients with all kinds of problems often who’ve been to many other places where they haven’t been able to be treated and I feel so proud that we can get those patients better, taken care of and cured. – We say we’re in it together because we are. We share resources, we support each other and we collaborate on research and education. Colon cancer, esophageal cancer
and pancreatic cancer are lethal. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States, and it’s our unwavering commitment to make these cancers not only treatable, but that we can cure them. We want to wipe these cancers off the map. – My mission is to bridge the high-tech with the high-touch and you cannot have one without the other. And it’s not only just a high-tech, but a high-touch and actually at the same time, high-teach. – Our gastroenterology training program is one of the best in the world, training the future generation of gastroenterologists is an amazing gift that I’ve been given. – We have everything and anything available to us. With the new CDDC, the potential is unlimited. – We want to be a beacon of light to our community. A place where there’s hope for
terrible cancers and diseases. A place where people will cure it. We don’t accept a dire prognosis – we’ll think out of the box, and we’ll find a solution.
