Clearing the Air for Quality Healthcare
As an Orange County leader in the provision of quality healthcare, Hoag
is a designated smoke free zone. All Hoag facilities throughout Orange
County are non-smoking.
While all individuals are expected to comply with the smoke free policy

preparation and knowledge you can be one of them.
