Birthing Locations

Fudge Family Birthing Suites

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 is proud to welcome 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.

  • 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 Level 2 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and is 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 the Tsao family 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.

Dear Patient,

We are here for you. Due to Covid and staff shortage, you may experience longer wait times on the phone and in the lobbies. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to service you as effectively as possible!

Your safety and our staff’s safety are important to us, we have made changes to accommodate and provide high-quality care:

Telemedicine Visits are still available and office appointments are spread out to limit the number of patients in our lobby.

PLEASE NOTE: All patients are required to wear a face mask prior to entering the office. NO visitors or children will be permitted.

Thank you for understanding.

In Good Health,

OCWMG Physicians
