A Community United
Thank you for supporting our Providence family in memory of Michael Mammone, M.D.
The loss of a loved one is a devastating event as we learn to adjust to life without their presence. In February, Providence Mission Hospital lost one of its beloved emergency medicine physicians, Dr. Mammone, who dedicated 12 years of compassionate service at our Laguna Beach location. While he may no longer be with us, Dr. Mammone’s everlasting impact is engraved on our hearts.
A trauma physician for 30 years, Dr. Mammone impacted thousands of patients across Southern California. His career started at San Antonio Regional Medical Center in Upland and then as the medical director for Rancho Cucamonga Fire District. His desire to pursue trauma care began in his early years as a Los Angeles County lifeguard. His dreams became a reality when he graduated from the University of Southern California School of Medicine in 1993.
During times of grief and sadness, the outpouring of love and support from the community was truly remarkable. From the Orange County Sheriff’s Department providing therapy dogs for our caregivers to the heartwarming messages and tributes, these acts of kindness remind us of the vast impact Dr. Mammone had on his patients and our community.
“Dr. Mammone’s legacy of caring has rekindled my commitment to the important work we do and my desire to make each moment count. He will always be a treasured member of our Mission family,” shares Seth Teigen, chief executive. “Thank you to our community for the compassion you have shown our caregivers over the past few months. You gave us the strength needed to move forward during this challenging time.”
Providence Mission Hospital is honored to have witnessed Dr. Mammone’s legacy of serving others and the critical role he played in our emergency department, where he cared for those in need of hope and healing. A true champion, Dr. Mammone will forever be remembered as a treasured friend, physician and loved one. Thank you to our loyal community for wrapping your arms around our caregivers during this difficult time. We are truly fortunate to have you beside us.
Together, we can provide care that transforms lives, now and for years to come.
