Hearts for Hoag

Celebrating the Nancy & Bill Thompson Center for Cadiovascular Care at the Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart & Vascular Institute

In spring 2015, Hoag was pleased to celebrate the completion of the Nancy & Bill Thompson Center for Cardiovascular Care at the Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart & Vascular Institute. During a ceremony on March 5, Hoag Hospital Foundation recognized Nancy and Bill Thompson for their generous donation and honored past donors who made this project possible, including Bob and Marjie Bennett, Allan and Sandy Fainbarg, Ronnie and Byron Allumbaugh and the late Jeffrey M. Carlton.

During the unveiling event, donor Bill Thompson spoke about the importance of philanthropy. “Nancy and I are fortunate to be able to support great organizations, like Hoag, to save more lives and make our community healthier,” Bill shares. “We are honored to help Hoag continue its legacy as the county’s top-rated heart program.”
The grand opening marks the completion of the two-phase expansion. Phase II features the opening of Hoag’s outpatient cardiac services, including the Nancy & Bill Thompson Heart Valve Center, Congestive Heart Failure Clinic, Arrhythmia Clinic, non-invasive cardiac imaging and vascular imaging.

“It is so exciting to see the completion of the Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart & Vascular Institute, with the opening of the Thompson Center for Cardiovascular Care,” says Robert T. Braithwaite, president and CEO of Hoag. “The Carlton Heart & Vascular Institute is recognized as one of the preeminent cardiovascular centers on the West Coast offering the most advanced treatment and facilities. Hoag continues to put its patients first and this state-of-the-art expansion is just another example.”
