Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian (Newport Beach, Calif.). The foundations for Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian were laid in 1944 when a reverend, seven members of the Presbyterian church and a physician decided to build a hospital for residents in Orange County. When funding for the developing hospital slowed during World War II, George Hoag, his wife Grace and his son George Hoag II donated the funds through the family's foundation in 1950. The hospital was completed in just two years, opening its doors on Sept. 15, 1952, housing 75 beds staffed by 68 physicians and 60 employees.

Hoag Memorial has achieved Magnet designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Additionally, in 2015, Healthgrades named Hoag Memorial among America's 50 Best Hospitals and awarded it the Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence.

In March, Hoag's Newport Beach campus opened its new William and Nancy Thompson Cardiovascular Center. The hospital also has dedicated institutes for cancer, orthopedics, neurosciences, heart and vascular and women's health.

"Since Hoag first opened its doors in 1952, we have provided world-class care delivered in outstanding facilities by extraordinary professionals,” said Robert T. Braithwaite, Hoag’s president and CEO. “Over the past 63 years, our promise to the community has never wavered.
