The Newport Beach Planning Commission voted unanimously Thursday night to accept a plan by Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian to allow shifting up to 225,000 square feet of building space from its lower to upper campus, a move the hospital said would allow for construction of more operating rooms and care facilities. The commission’s vote came after a meeting at Newport Beach City Hall, in which a number of residents in the neighboring Villa Balboa condominium complex said they wanted Hoag to reduce its noise and air pollution levels before the city approved its new project.

Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian announced its plans to expand into Irvine next year after coming to an agreement with HCP Inc. to lease its 175-bed facility when the lease is up in February 2009, officials said Thursday. The hospital already has health centers in Aliso Viejo, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Huntington Beach and two locations in Irvine. The new location on Sand Canyon Avenue near the 405 Freeway will become an acute care general hospital, such as the one in Newport Beach, but at a much smaller level than Newport Beach’s hospital that houses 498 beds.

I object to Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian's decision to cease providing a full range of women's services, ostensibly because not enough procedures are performed. The dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure, used to abort in the early stages of pregnancy, is the same procedure used for a miscarriage. These are common procedures, and it is disingenuous to claim that not enough are performed and thus they need to be eliminated. If they followed their own logic, one might presume that they would shut down many of their surgical services for operations performed less than their own stated standard of 100 times per year, but they have not. Hoag has given the impression that St. Joseph Health did not require a cessation of abortion services, but a careful reading of Hoag President Robert Braithwaite's words indicate only that St. Joseph "did not pressure" Hoag to make this decision.
