Welcome to the Melinda Hoag Smith Center for Healthy Living

“We are encouraged by the better angels of our nature and the disposition of our hearts to think favorably of our fellows, regardless of their circumstances, and to serve them well; improving and sustaining their health and the quality of their lives and thus benefitting all.” Dr. Gwyn Parry

The Melinda Hoag Smith Center for Healthy Living (MHSCHL) is a collaborative endeavor, bringing like-minded organizations and non profits under one roof. The MHSCHL allows providers to take an integrated, holistic approach to community services addressing everything from health care to legal services, to mental health and spiritual support. The center is positioned to become a national model of integration, cooperation and effective community service.

The MHSCHL houses an impressive number of organizations that provide comprehensive services, including: Hoag's Mental Health Center, Hoag's Pastoral Care program, SOS Children and Family Health Center and Costa Mesa Family Resource Center. To facilitate collaboration and build capacity in our community partner agencies, the MHSCHL provides non-profit partners with physical space and resources to operate out of. Located across from Hoag Hospital, a hoteling model will be used so that partner agencies can rotate in and out of the center.
