Hoag’s family of maternity services is growing!
Nothing compares to the experience of being pregnant and ultimately welcoming a baby into the world.
And as the needs and desires of today’s expectant and new mothers change, Hoag is making sure the labor and childbirth experience changes as well.
Hoag proudly welcomes the community to the Fudge Family Birthing Suites at Hoag Hospital Irvine, ushering in an exciting new era in labor and delivery. As the leading provider of maternity services in Orange County and second largest in California, Hoag is uniquely positioned to reimagine the experience of pregnancy, delivery and recovery for modern families.
Families spoke, and we listened.
The result is a beautiful, brand-new facility featuring 12 birthing suites that are unlike anything else available in a hospital setting. Accommodating evolving trends in maternity care, the new suites offer the ability for moms-to-be to experience labor, delivery and the first precious moments with their newborns all in the same room.
The design of the space takes advantage of its ground-floor location to include a private, lushly landscaped outdoor walking garden to serve as a calming influence on expectant mothers. The unit also includes two C-section operating rooms and a nursery staffed 24/7 by an expert team including OB/GYN hospitalists, certified nurse midwives and board-certified anesthesiologists and neonatologists.
The new Fudge Family Birthing Suites are an extension of the world-renowned maternity services at Hoag’s Newport Beach campus. Thanks to the generosity of Orange County philanthropist Gary Fudge, and other visionary philanthropic donors, the 12 new suites combine the reassurance of a Hoag delivery with a family-centered design and home-like amenities.
