Nursing Excellence: Celebrating the Nurses That Drive Exceptional Care

The Champieux family’s journey showcases Hoag’s commitment to fostering nursing excellence through investing in education, mentorship and a culture of delivering exceptional care with compassion. Thanks to philanthropy, Hoag continues to provide the highest quality care to the communities we serve.

Expanding Our Reach:
Hoag Health Center Irvine

Hoag Health Center Irvine opened in 2016, a landmark moment of purposeful growth that brought Hoag’s advanced care, technology and resources to the Irvine community. Hoag Health Center Irvine is designed to deliver a superior patient experience that is seamless, personal and convenient. We further expanded our geographic reach by opening a second location in Woodbridge Irvine in August 2018. Hoag Health Center Irvine-Woodbridge was fortuitously designed for telehealth services, and duplicates all the educational services that are offered in Newport Beach, including a mother-baby area for moms to spend time with their little ones while waiting for their two hour oral glucose tolerance test.
