Better Every Day

With every baby born, every heart valve replaced and every ailment treated, you place your trust in Hoag. In return for that privilege, we continue to strive to serve you better – and this edition of Hoag for Life provides just a few of the many ways we are doing so. You will read how Hoag, along with our allied partner, St. Joseph Health, is transforming heart valve care for Orange County patients with a regional Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) program. You will learn how Hoag’s comprehensive surgical cancer program combines the most skilled surgeons with the most advanced minimally invasive techniques; and how this fall, we are expanding the options for chemical dependency treatment with a new evidenced-based residential program. You will be introduced to an exciting new comprehensive wellness center focused exclusively on women’s health, and get a glimpse at the tremendous work of Hoag’s “guardian angels” – our outstanding nurses, who recently attained a prestigious national designation for the third time in a row. And most importantly, you will learn how to ensure you and your family have access to Hoag’s innovative programs and high-quality care as you make your health insurance plan choices during open enrollment. These stories are just a few examples of how Hoag continuously works to elevate the quality of care for you, your family, and our community. For life.
