How to support Hoag’s COVID-19 efforts

Many in our donor family have reached out to ask how they can help support Hoag’s COVID-19 efforts. Hoag Hospital Foundation has created the Hoag COVID-19 Support Fund to assist Hoag in caring for our community members affected by the virus as well as the caregivers and staff working tirelessly to treat them. Click here to donate.

The COVID-19 situation is changing daily, and we know it’s important that you stay informed. You can find accurate, up-to-date information on Hoag’s COVID-19 website. You can also visit or the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention here.

In this difficult and unprecedented time, we are heartened and comforted by the resilience of the human spirit. We share our nation’s concerns, but we also have unwavering faith that we will get through this challenge together.

You should re-think your position on “no tennis”

I am not a member of the Palisades Tennis club and don’t even know where it is but, have to rebut your comment to close all courts (pickleball too).

My daughter and family live elsewhere in California, but for the four of them being able to play tennis has been a godsend. With two active teenagers in the house it is a good way to work off some of that excess energy and
they are being respectful of other peoples’ spaces only being in proximity of family members.

Please rethink your position on this.

Thank You,

Karen Carlson
