Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian donated $500,000 to support programs at the Center for Health Care Management and Policy at UC Irvine’s Paul Merage School of Business. “We are absolutely delighted that Hoag Hospital – one of the most highly-regarded health care institutions in the nation – has stepped up to partner with the Merage School to try and find solutions to pressing health care problems in America,” said Andy Policano, dean of the Merage School. “I am convinced that this additional step in the partnership between Hoag and the UCI campus will yield many benefits to the community.” Hoag President and CEO, Dr. Richard Afable, said the hospital is committed to shaping the future of health care. “We look forward to working together…to initiate positive changes that will result in higher levels of quality health care for our community and beyond.”
