Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, a 409-bed acute care hospital in Newport Beach, California, has announced a $5 million grant from the Anaheim-based A. Gary Anderson Family Foundation to its campaign for the Hoag Women's Pavilion. The gift from the foundation is one of the largest single contributions ever received by the not-for-profit hospital.
Led by co-chairs Ginny Ueberroth, Arden Flamson, and Sandy Sewell, the campaign has generated $48 million in commitments toward its goal of $50 million in just two and a half years. The fifth floor of the the pavilion, a 309,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility scheduled to open in 2005 on the hospital's Newport Beach campus, will be named in recognition of the gift from the foundation.
"The purposes of our philanthropy and the goals of Hoag Hospital are a perfect fit," said Anderson Family Foundation president Erin J. Lastinger. "We are both striving to continuously improve services to our community. The Anderson Family Foundation is convinced that the new programs and services offered as a result of this support will have a tremendous impact for many years to come."
