Dedicated to Our Community

At Hoag, we are proud of our national awards and recognition, but that isn’t the only reason you trust us with your care. Our strength is in our people: the physicians, nurses, technicians and support staff who know how to help our patients feel cared for during challenging times and celebrated during triumphant ones. In this issue of Hoag for Life, you will learn how Hoag assembled the county’s only comprehensive team for Gastrointestinal Cancer Care, and you will meet some of the extraordinary doctors providing unparalleled treatment. You will read how our Maternal Health team provides compassionate and comprehensive care for families and the more than 6,000 babies who enter the world at Hoag every year. From the cardiac surgeons who receive patients from all over the country for mitral valve repair to our skilled neurosciences subspecialists with advanced training in complex conditions includingParkinson’s disease and epilepsy, Hoag is known not only for the quality of our care, but also the quality of the people who provide it. We are proud to be a world-class health care organization – but we are far more proud to be your community hospital.
