MemorialCare's Dr. Taub Finds Creative Way to Inspire Frontline Caregivers
Friday, April 17, 2020
As Medical Director of Emergency Services at MemorialCare Saddleback Medical Center, Dr. Marc Taub was instrumental in ensuring MemorialCare’s readiness for addressing the COVID-19 pandemic.
Under his leadership, the Medical Center’s Emergency Department created specialized procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the continued safety, exceptional care, and well-being of patients, physicians, and staff—the kind of work he leads his team to do every day.
“What makes Dr. Taub stand out during this challenging time is the way he leads his team with love and compassion,” said Marcia Manker, CEO, MemorialCare Saddleback Medical Center. “He never stops his pursuit of finding ways to inspire them so that they can provide the very best possible care to each patient who walks in the doors of their emergency room.”
Amid the COVID-19 crisis, Dr. Taub reached out to his friend Nick Hernandez of the Common Sense band to write a song for MemorialCare’s frontline caregivers to spread kindness and positivity. A phrase from that song, “These times are hard, but we still got love to give, so let’s think positive,” goes a long way to keep spirits up, which is essential for caregivers and patients alike during these unprecedented times.
Saddleback Medical Center’s Emergency Department team is highly-trained and experienced in caring for patients, including those who need to receive emergent care for medical injury or illness such as a virus or infectious disease. Dr. Taub was appointed Medical Director in 2007.
