Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian will create institutes for women’s health, cancer care and digestive illnesses.
Hoag will use a $50 million gift from the Sun Family Foundation to pay for the institutes, which will be housed in new three-story buildings. Hoag has plans to expand its Irvine hospital from 575,000 square feet to more than 1 million square feet – and more than double its hospital beds.
Hoag is part of Irvine’s Sand Canyon Medical Corridor that was planned to put comprehensive medical care close to local homes.
“We’re creating a health care village built on what the Irvine Company has done,” Sanford Smith, Hoag’s vice president of real estate and facilities, told the Orange County Register. “The buildings will be low-rise and pedestrian-friendly. It will complement the health care center already on Sand Canyon Avenue.”
