Hoag Hospital Irvine is “Expecting”

To accommodate the evolving trends in maternity care in one of the nation's fastest-growing communities, Hoag Hospital Irvine will be adding maternity services beginning in summer 2020.

Maternity services will include 12 birthing suites that offer a different kind of experience for lower risk pregnant women and their families. Women will labor, deliver and recover in the same room with a family-centered design and warm home-like aesthetic. Taking advantage of its ground-floor location, the space will also include a beautiful outdoor walking garden that will serve as a calming influence on expectant mothers, their partners and visitors.

"The needs and wants of expectant mothers are changing at a rapid pace. Hoag is mindful of these shifting expectations and will create an experience in Irvine that is relaxed, comfortable and appealing to local residents," explained Allyson Brooks, M.D., Ginny Ueberroth Executive Medical Director Endowed Chair, Hoag Women’s Health Institute.

Hoag Hospital Irvine is directly across the street from Hoag Health Center Irvine - Sand Canyon, which was designed as a community-centric health care "village" offering a wide range of health care services within minutes of tens of thousands of residents and employees.

"Expanding women’s services in Irvine to include labor and delivery will make it easier than ever for women and families to access our renowned services and programs in their community," said Marcy Brown, vice president of Hoag Hospital Irvine and Ambulatory Services. “This new offering will provide expectant families with excellent medical care and comprehensive pre- and post-natal care as they begin one of the most exciting chapters of their lives."

Construction work on the 18,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to begin in March 2019. OB/GYN doctors, nurses and staff at Hoag Hospital Irvine will greet their first expectant parents in mid-2020 when the maternity suites officially open.
