With its design and emphasis on providing convenient access to care in a facility integrated with the community it serves, the new 150,000-square-foot Hoag Health Center Irvine–Sand Canyon (Calif.) is a key part of what has developed into a health care village.

Making it easier for individuals and families to access Hoag’s services and programs, the Hoag Health Center Irvine provides specialized and comprehensive health care services, including women’s health, cancer care and more.

The new health center complements the acute care services offered at Hoag Hospital Irvine, which is located across the street. The result is a health care village that provides high-quality services in a setting that ensures convenient access to care.

“Among its many enviable qualities, Irvine is revered for its well-designed villages, admired for their innovation and excellent quality of life,” says Marcy Brown, vice president of Hoag Hospital Irvine and ambulatory services.

“When Hoag set out to create the future of health care delivery, we drew inspiration from these villages and created an unparalleled community approach to health,” Brown says.

The Hoag Health Center Irvine provides individuals and families in Irvine and surrounding communities with access to the health system’s specialized services and providers.

“Working with residents and city officials, we heard repeatedly that Irvine is in need of world-class specialized services closer to home,” Brown says. “We listened, and Hoag Health Center Irvine is our response.” 

The new state-of-the-art center also features a 7,200-square-foot building that houses King’s Pharmacy and Compounding Center, as well as Hoag Urgent Care managed by Hoag Medical Group, and a café, which is coming soon.

“Hoag Irvine has become a prime destination for health care for Irvine residents and beyond, and this expansion builds upon that,” Brown says.

“Working together, Hoag and Irvine are building a patient-centric model of health care for the city that will likely inform the way the rest of the county — and possibly the country — approaches health care,” she says.
