President, Hoag Hospital Foundation
Sr. Vice President, Hoag

The Hoag Family Foundation provided the leadership funds to build the original Hoag Hospital in 1952 and community support of Hoag has made an impact on every subsequent improvement, expansion and acquisition. In fact, the Hoag “experience” that our patients and families have come to expect from Hoag is a direct result of the long-term community commitment to excellence.

Our donors understand that when they support Hoag, they are partnering with us to enhance an anchor resource in Orange County. While community support has always been vital to Hoag’s success in providing world-class care in outstanding facilities, it will be even more important going forward.

Nationwide, healthcare delivery is and has been in a state of change which has accelerated due to political, economic and market factors. It is rapidly evolving from an inpatient care model, which results in higher costs, to an outpatient care model which is much more cost efficient. Hoag anticipated the changes in healthcare and has been transforming itself from a Newport Beach-based hospital campus to a community-based healthcare delivery network serving much of Orange County.

The Hoag Hospital Foundation is playing an integral role supporting Hoag’s move forward as a leader in the next generation of healthcare. We are in the early stages of a new comprehensive campaign to better support Hoag’s strategic direction. You will hear more about the goal for the new campaign in the future as we move forward in the campaign development process. Thank you to all of our generous donors who have shared the vision and participated in the Hoag’s success in the first 60 years.

We look forward to partnering with you to support Hoag as it continues to adapt to changes in healthcare delivery while maintaining its identity and culture of exemplary clinical care, exceptional patient experience and innovation.
