CHARITY CARE
Staying true to its mission to help those in need, in 2016 HOI provided nearly $2 million in charity care to aid the surrounding area’s low-income, underinsured and uninsured men, women and children in need of orthopedic care – a signi cant increase from the $1.5 million in charity care provided in 2015.
Nearly one in four of Orange County’s 3.2 million residents struggle in poverty. HOI was able
to provide charitable care to this vulnerable population through partnerships with AccessOC Southern California, La Amistad de Jose Family Health Center, Share Our Selves (SOS) and the SOS-El Sol Wellness Center.

GRANT PROVIDING ATHLETIC TRAINERS TO IRVINE SCHOOLS
HOI renewed its commitment to student athletes in the Irvine Uni ed School District by donating $50,000 to the Irvine Public Schools Foundation (IPSF) Health and Wellness Initiative for the 2016-17 academic year. These funds helped pay for schools’ athletic trainers, who protect our youth through injury prevention as well as appropriate emergency care, therapeutic interventions and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.
