Hoag Brings World-Class Care to Huntington Beach

In the spring of 2014, Hoag expanded its renowned cardiac services, bringing them to the newly renovated Hoag Health Center Huntington Beach. Additionally, Hoag partnered with CHOC Children’s to bring specialty pediatric care to Surf City. And a Hoag Urgent Care now also provides after-hours care for all residents in the Huntington Beach area.

“The expansion of these subspecialties is part of a larger goal of giving patients the best possible care where they live,” said Robert T. Braithwaite, Hoag president and CEO. “Making services more readily available to more people will go a long way to creating a healthier Orange County.”

For parents, this means knowing that you don’t have to travel far to get the highest-quality subspecialty care available for your children. Open Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., CHOC Children’s Health Center includes such specialists as pediatric urologist Antoine Khoury, M.D.; pulmonologists Amy Harrison, M.D., Pornchai Tirakitsoontorn, M.D., Bruce Nickerson, M.D. and Anchalee Yuengsrigul, M.D.; and Daniel Jaffurs, M.D., Ph.D., a pediatric plastic surgeon who specializes in the treatment of cleft lip and palate and various congenital defects.

“CHOC Children’s is grateful for our long-standing partnership with Hoag and is pleased to be a part of the Hoag Health Center Huntington Beach,” said Kimberly Chavalas Cripe, president and CEO, CHOC Children’s. “With the opening of our newest CHOC Children’s Health Center at this location, families living in Huntington Beach and surrounding communities will have access to pediatric specialty care closer to home and in a convenient, family centered-care environment.”

The center also brings premium cardiac services to Huntington Beach. For more than 25 years, patients have traveled to the Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart & Vascular Institute from all over the world because Hoag’s nationally recognized team offers unparalleled outcomes. The center now offers that same level of care in Huntington Beach.

“Orange County residents have never had to go far to receive the best cardiac care,” said Cynthia Perazzo, Hoag senior vice president of strategy and business development. “We are pleased to now provide these specialized services to Huntington Beach and Fountain Valley residents in their own backyard.”

The newly expanded center offers access to gold-standard cardiovascular testing and imaging, EKG, Echocardiogram, Holter Monitoring, and Vascular Ultrasound. Hoag Health Center Huntington Beach is also now home to additional renowned cardiologists specializing in interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, nuclear cardiology, peripheral vascular disease and structural heart repair.


“Hoag Health Care Huntington Beach offers superior technology, the most experienced physicians and specialists and a level of convenience that Huntington Beach-area residents have never known before,” said Braithwaite. “Working together, we are eager to turn Surf City into an even Healthier Huntington Beach.”
