Updates to Community Education, Events and Elective Surgeries

Community Education and Events

In a preventative effort to protect our patients and help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Hoag has cancelled all in-person events and classes until further notice. We are shifting many classes to virtual and live streaming classes. Check back shortly for links to these online options.

Rescheduling of Elective Surgeries and Procedures

In late April, Governor Newsom approved health care facilities resuming essential surgeries in areas of low and stable COVID-19 incidence. Hoag has begun performing essential surgeries with strict safety protocols in place, including pre-screening patients preoperatively. Since COVID-19 continues to be a fluid situation, we recommend that all patients speak with their primary physician and/or surgeon for any questions about an upcoming surgery or rescheduling a surgery that was previously postponed.
