Hoag Hospital is well-equipped to treat patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, including those with other conditions, said Senior Vice President and Chief Hospital Operations Officer Marcy Brown. Hoag was one of the first hospitals to treat a known COVID-19 patient in California this past January, and since that first patient, their command center has “meticulously tracked” the number of available beds, ventilators, personal protective equipment (PPE), pharmaceuticals and more on a daily basis, Brown said.
