Serving the Community
Hoag ASPIRE and Young Adults Mental Health programs provide free support services that offer coping strategies to help assist teens and young adults in crisis.
Accreditation and Licensure
Hospitals that achieve accreditation and licensure are required to submit to formalized, comprehensive evaluations by on-site surveyors who assess compliance with health, quality and safety standards and regulations. These surveys are conducted regularly and involve participation from the entire hospital organization.
Patient Rights and Privacy Notices
As a patient at Hoag Hospital, you have certain rights and responsibilities that are inherent in your health care. To receive the best possible care, it is important that you play an active role in your medical treatment. It is the responsibility of your health care team to include you in that process. Part of this process is completing an Advance Health Care Directive to designate a decision maker if you become incapable of understanding a proposed treatment or become unable to communicate your wishes regarding care. Hospital staff and practitioners who provide care in the hospital shall comply with these directives. All patients’ rights apply to the person who has legal responsibility to make decisions regarding medical care on your behalf. Download an Advance Health Care Directive form in English or Spanish.
We bill Medicare and your secondary insurance following receipt of Medicare’s payment. Once your secondary insurance has been billed, you will receive periodic statements advising you of the balance due. You will also receive bills for physicians, hospital out-patient and Medicare Part B services.
