Hoag was recognized in the Orange County Register's Best of Orange County reader survey for the 23rd time in the Hospital category.
More than 80 community organizations receive support from a non-profit, faith-based hospital based in Newport Beach since 1952 as well as in Irvine since 2010, according to the president and CEO Robert Braithwaite.
Hoag Hospital, which also includes eight health centers and 11 urgent care centers throughout Orange County, introduced a Community Benefit Program as part of its mission. “Hoag’s mission,” Braithwaite said, “is to be a proactive participant in providing and partnering with other like-minded organizations to meet the ever-increasing needs of the Orange County community.”
Also of note, Pickup Family Neurosciences Institute at the hospital celebrated its 10-year anniversary last October, when it was renamed following a $15 million donation from Pickup Family Foundation, Braithwaite explained. According to Braithwaite, the Institute’s Brain Tumor Program, the largest of its kind in Orange County, was one of the first to offer Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion, heralded as the most advanced radiosurgical treatment system available.
