In a celebration of innovation and community support, more than 300 Hoag executives, community leaders, donors and staff broke ground in late July on Hoag’s Irvine expansion.
The new campus will be named the Sun Family Campus to honor Diana and David Sun, who donated $50 million toward the project. When completed, the Sun Family Campus will include new state-of-the- art specialty care centers for surgical innovation, cancer, and digestive and women’s health, in addition to dedicated urgent care services for cancer patients. The six new buildings will house 155 inpatient beds, eight operating rooms and 120,000 square feet of ambulatory facilities.
“Thanks to the Sun family’s gift and the support of many other generous donors, community leaders, and dedicated physicians and staff, we are boldly moving forward in Hoag’s vision for Irvine,” said Robert Braithwaite, president and CEO of Hoag.
“This expansion serves as a gateway for South Orange County residents to access Hoag’s medical excellence, unparalleled service and patient-focused outcomes.”
Mayor Farrah Khan spoke at the groundbreaking event alongside Hoag President and CEO Robert Braithwaite, Hoag Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer Marcy Brown, Hoag Hospital Foundation President Flynn A. Andrizzi, Ph.D., and Dara Sun Mullarkey, daughter of Diana and David Sun.
