Who We Are
Hoag Orthopedic Institute was developed through a unique partnership between Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian and a select group of Orange County based orthopedic physicians with many years of experience providing care to orthopedic patients. After years of careful and dedicated planning, the organization has successfully combined the ideas and experience of the best hospital in Orange County, Hoag, with the knowledge, skills and experience of some of the top orthopedic physicians in their field.
Hoag Orthopedic Institute is one of the only specialty hospitals in the United States caring exclusively for orthopedic patients. Our goal is to restore, improve and enhance the health and mobility of individuals with musculoskeletal conditions and diseases through excellence in care and outcomes, clinical innovation, research and advocacy.
The Hoag Orthopedic Institute facility, located at 16250 Sand Canyon Avenue in Irvine, has 70 beds and nine operating rooms designed and equipped specifically for orthopedic cases. All staff and physicians are highly educated, trained and experienced in the diagnoses associated with the orthopedic patient. Thus they have developed deep skills and deep knowledge that has drawn to them more orthopedic procedures than any other facility or group in California. The physicians at Hoag Orthopedic Institute are all Board Certified orthopedic surgeons, and the nursing staff is trained specifically in orthopedic surgical care.
In addition, the patient-centered focus Hoag Orthopedic Institute ensures that patients can experience a maximally healing environment. A unique and very significant part of the healing environment are the Nurse Navigators, assigned to each inpatient as a personal guide from the moment they decide to pursue surgery, through the surgery itself, the physical therapy, discharge and ongoing care. The physical surroundings are designed to be healing as well, incorporating feng shui elements and attention to keeping the noise level at a minimum.
Hoag Orthopedic Institute is affiliated with two outpatient facilities, one located in Newport Beach and the other in Santa Ana. These facilities are also dedicated to the care of the orthopedic patient. We are one out of three hospitals in the state selected to develop a statewide registry program, and we are unique as well in developing a value-based episode of care program for payment.
While we have achieved our goal of developing a patient-centered, value-based facility for orthopedic diagnosis and care, we continue to improve and grow by always pursuing better patient care through a number of major initiatives.
