Visit Anaheim Joins Forces with Hoag to Offer New Health Services and Resources for Meetings & Conventions


Clinical Solutions to be Uniquely Tailored for Each Event to
Meet Client Needs, Modeling Safe Practices for Attendees to Confidently Convene


ANAHEIM, Calif. (May 20, 2021) – Visit Anaheim, the official destination marketing organization for Anaheim, is proud to announce its partnership with Hoag, a local, non-profit health care network, to provide clinical solutions for events, meetings and conventions to mitigate the risks of COVID-19. As Visit Anaheim’s partner in health, Hoag will offer a variety of clinical service options for clients to choose from including COVID-19 technology solutions and services, on-site screening solutions, live event medical directorship, and clinical event planning services.

To prioritize safety, Visit Anaheim has committed to a preliminary review of clients’ health and safety plans for incoming events, conducted by Hoag. Clients with a scheduled event are eligible for a complimentary review of their health and safety plan, with comments and recommendations provided by Hoag within one week. Additionally, if state and local health guidelines change prior to the event, clients may resubmit their plan for a secondary review.

“As we begin to welcome back meetings, events and conventions to Anaheim, the work to safely and responsibly reopen continues and remains the highest priority for Visit Anaheim,” said Jay Burress, president & CEO, Visit Anaheim. “We have taken extensive steps to prepare for our clients return and now that we have a well-respected leader in the health care space on board as a partner, we know our clients and their attendees will have an added layer of confidence about their safety while in Anaheim.”

Hoag provides health and wellness solutions to many of Orange County’s employers, including Disneyland® Resort and John Wayne Airport. As part of its partnership with Visit Anaheim, Hoag is offering a comprehensive portfolio of services and resources that can be uniquely tailored to meet the needs of events, meetings and conventions.

"Hoag is privileged to partner with Visit Anaheim to provide health care services and custom safety solutions for meeting, event and convention organizers,” said Robert Braithwaite, President and Chief Executive Officer at Hoag. “We are committed to the safety and well-being of our community, and proud to support the return of both events and visitors to Orange County."

For Visit Anaheim clients to receive complimentary support for an upcoming event, health and safety plans must be submitted at least three months in advance.
