Hoag for Life | Spring 2016

Kim York’s and Jill Muro’s paths may never cross, but the two women will forever share a common bond: both of their lives have been profoundly touched by the extraordinary and compassionate care they received at Hoag. Their experiences, while vastly different, shine a light on Hoag’s unshakable commitment to providing its patients and the entire community with the very finest health care available. You’ll read about the two women’s heartwarming experiences in this issue of Hoag for Life. This issue is chockfull of exciting news about how Hoag is expanding the boundaries of health care in Orange County, from the soon-to-open Hoag Cancer Center Irvine, to being chosen as the West Coast location to optimize the health of former NFL players, to innovative programs that are helping teens overcome debilitating depression and anxiety issues. This issue also highlights a new major gift from the George Hoag Family Foundation that will usher in unprecedented collaborations among organizations that provide critical services to underserved individuals and families. The gift is just the latest example of the Hoag Family’s limitless generosity – and of their remarkable commitment to the community and to Hoag … for life.
