IRVINE — Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian is known for providing high quality health care in Newport Beach.
Since Hoag Hospital's inception in 1952, it has quadrupled in size — from 75 to 498 beds — and has quickly become a leader in cancer, vascular, neurological and orthopedic research.
On Sept. 1, Hoag Hospital Irvine will expand the hospital's reach into a neighboring city.
"Our goal is for Hoag Hospital Irvine to deliver the same excellence in care patients have come know from Hoag's Newport Beach campus to Irvine and South County residents," said Robert Braithwaite, chief administrative officer for Hoag Hospital Irvine.
Formerly known as Irvine Regional Hospital and Medical Center, a year of renovations has given the facility a new life. Known for the cotton candy pink interior, Hoag channeled the surrounding areas and found inspiration in Irvine's nature, using a palette of warm neutrals and greens.
The total cost of the new hospital is estimated at $84 million, and it's clear that the new campus, although smaller than its Newport sibling, will be pushing the envelope in terms of cutting-edge medical technology.
