Honoring the Fainbarg Family

Hoag named the Fainbarg Community Education Center in recognition of the Fainbarg family’s ongoing generosity.

The Hoag Hospital Foundation announced the naming of the Allan & Sandy Fainbarg Community Education Center at Hoag Hospital Irvine. Hoag named the Fainbarg Community Education Center in recognition of the Fainbarg family’s ongoing generosity and their latest gift benefiting multiple areas of Hoag, including: 

  • Hoag Hospital Irvine Emergency Department expansion 
  • Endowed Education Fund in honor of James Berman, M.D. 
  • Clinical Fellows in Total Joints, Spine and Sports Medicine 
  • Hoag Orthopedics Grand Rounds and Community Outreach

Steven Fainbarg cut the ribbon alongside Marcy Brown, vice president of Hoag Hospital Irvine and Ambulatory Services and Carlos Prietto, M.D., M.Ed., president of Hoag Orthopedic Institute and executive director of Hoag Orthopedics. 

Vital and Active Community Resource 

Last year, the Fainbarg Community Education Center was host to 168 patient and community education classes and workshops, 88 physician grand rounds and 86 Hoag employee training sessions. “We are pleased to recognize the Fainbarg family’s most recent gift to Hoag with the naming of this facility,” said Robert Braithwaite, Hoag president and CEO. “The Fainbarg Community Education Center is the site of health screenings, outreach programs and wellness classes as well as health education programs for medical providers, staff and the community.” 

The Fainbarg family’s past giving allowed Hoag to be one of the first with ground-breaking technology in the Allan & Sandy Fainbarg Electrophysiology Catheterization Suite, housed in the Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart & Vascular Institute at Hoag Hospital Newport Beach. 

“We are privileged to count the Fainbarg family as long-time Hoag supporters whose generosity is having a direct impact on outstanding care in our community,” said Flynn A. Andrizzi, Ph.D., president of the Hoag Hospital Foundation. “It’s wonderful to honor and celebrate the culture of philanthropy that Allan and Sandy have instilled in their family.”
