NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.—In response to increasing demand in Orange County from a rising population of seniors wishing to receive care in their own homes, Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian has launched Hoag at Home.

“We want patients to have the same quality, compassionate experience that they receive if they visit their doctor’s office, have an outpatient care experience at one of our health centers, or a hospital visit at Hoag,” Jeff Hammond, executive director of Hoag at Home, said in a press release.

Locally, the Orange County Strategic Plan for Aging said adults aged 65 and older account for 14.3 percent of the county’s population, representing about 450,000 of the nearly 3.2 million Orange County residents.

By 2045, that number is projected to increase to 17.3 percent.
