Hoag Infuses South County with Important Services

Acting on its commitment to improve the health of all of Orange County, Hoag recently opened the Hoag Infusion Center in Irvine in the medical building connected to Hoag Hospital Irvine.

The center serves patients in Irvine and the surrounding area in need of cancer or non-cancer infusions for neurology, infectious disease, nephrology, endocrinology, rheumatology and a host of other illnesses. It will also eventually offer chemotherapy treatment and currently serves the great number of cancer patients in the Irvine area who are in need of other infusion services, such as pain management, antibiotics and side effects management.

“While infusion services are still offered at Hoag’s Newport Beach campus, this new center is aimed at bringing an important medical service closer to South County patients to provide ease and convenience,” said Burton Eisenberg, M.D., executive medical director, Hoag Family Cancer Institute and Grace E. Hoag Executive Medical Director Endowed Chair.

“About 20 percent of the patients who come to Newport Beach for infusion services travel from Irvine. We’re moving the care closer to their home. It is what the community wants, and what it needs,” Eisenberg said.

The new Infusion Center is located at 16300 Sand Canyon Ave, Suite 504, and is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
