My family and I had the pleasure of visiting Newport Beach last week while on vacation from Canada. The beautiful scenery and the friendliness of your people made for a wonderful stay, and you should be duly proud. You should also be proud to have a health-care facility of such quality as Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian. During our stay in Newport I had an unfortunate fall, resulting in injury. We went to Hoag on the instruction of our health insurer, and from start to finish it was an impressive experience.

Peer into the cars around you the next time you're zooming down Coast Highway or Newport Boulevard. Each driver is headed to a different destination, but odds are good each started in the same place. As an obstetrician and now a gynecologist at Hoag Hospital, I've delivered more than 2,000 babies. There was a time when my sons tried to banish me from running errands with them, lest we run into someone I first saw in the delivery room. "Can Mom stay in the car while we run into the store?"

NEWPORT BEACH — For Joanne Baker's 50th birthday, she asked for $500,000. It wasn't for her, but for donations to children in South Africa affected by AIDS. What the Hoag Hospital OR charge nurse got in 2001 was $35,000, but that was more than enough to fuel her fledgling nonprofit, Tias Arms, and provide financial support to multiple small organizations in KwaZulu-Natal. The province located on South Africa's eastern coast is not only Baker's birthplace, but also "ground zero" for the country's growing AIDS epidemic, she said.

Many people have wondered what kind of health care still will be available at Hoag after its recent affiliation with the Catholic organization St. Joseph Health System. The questions focus on women's reproductive services and on end-of-life decisions, because it is commonly known that the Catholic religion has great concern and concomitantly rigid directives about them. This is not the first such affiliation for a Catholic health system, so some insight into Hoag's future might be found by examining other affiliations of non-Catholic hospitals with Catholic hospitals.

Richard Dunn In my final column before Hoag Hospital's Dr. Lisa Worsch induces labor on my wife and delivers our first child this weekend, here are 10 wishes for the Toshiba Senior Classic, which also has a pretty big stake at Hoag these days: 1) That Arnold Palmer plays again. Even if the King's scores weren't exactly as low as he would like in his Toshiba Classic debut last year (79-74--153), his appearance was the highlight of the tournament. This year, tournament officials are hopeful Palmer will return to Newport Beach Country Club for Toshiba Classic VII. 2)

A Hoag Hospital doctor will still have to pay an 85-year-old woman's family for failing to notice a blood clot that contributed to her death, an appellate court ruled this week. Dr. Luke Cheung, 49, of Irvine attended to Lois Shafer, of Corona del Mar on Feb. 8, 2009, after she fell in her home and suffered a head injury, according to appellate court documents. Cheung discharged Shafer after reviewing a CT scan of her brain, and sent her home with orders to resume her normal medication, including taking a blood thinner, Coumadin, and have uninterrupted sleep.

Adrianne Wingo and her family were settling down Sunday night to see what was on Netflix when something happened. "We were at home about to watch a movie, and I felt my water break," she said. That made her husband, Trung Nguyen, understandably nervous. The two Irvine residents knew their baby was on the way. They had just had a baby shower Saturday, but nobody could've guessed their child would start coming the day after it. "She said, 'Something's leaking,'" Nguyen recalled.

When Hoag Hospital, which has facilities in Irvine and Newport Beach, announced it was establishing a partnership with St. Joseph Health System, community groups say they were promised that the hospital would continue to provide the same services it always had. But soon after - and not all that surprisingly, given that St. Joseph is Catholic-run - Hoag declared that it would stop providing elective abortions. The decision drew an angry protest from some doctors and women's groups, who felt they had been lied to. On top of that, Hoag explained it was giving up the procedure because of low demand, although it subsequently turned out that ending elective abortions was a condition of the partnership from the start.

After giving birth to her second child by cesarean section in 2010 at Newport Beach's Hoag Hospital, Kimberlee Streiff felt something wasn't right. She and baby Rhone, now a curly-headed 3-year-old, were fine; it was the process, and her sense that the birth was out of her hands, that had unsettled her. Streiff, whose oldest son was also born by cesarean, had hoped to attempt a vaginal birth after C-section, or VBAC, she said. But when her labor didn't progress fast enough, her doctor quickly ushered her into surgery.

The graceful curve of a long seaglass blue countertop greeted visitors Wednesday night as they passed through the airy new lobby of Hoag Health Center in Huntington Beach. Many continued on - champagne flutes and wine glasses in hand - to tour the facility's state-of-the-art imaging center, pausing to inspect a giant CT scanner or exam rooms. But Hoag officials said the front counter in some ways best symbolizes the newly redesigned facility's ethos. "We tried to make the whole building more open and integrated," said Dominic Shields, Hoag's strategic planning manager.

Bryant enjoys working with emergency department patients during some of their most "critical" life moments, it said.
