    Biography

    Dr. Harano, a founding member of Hoag Medical Group, remembers when Hoag Hospital was “a small cottage hospital by the sea” where local residents had to go to Los Angeles to see a specialist. Having practiced in Newport Beach for 42 years, Dr. Harano has cared for many of his patients for 30 to 40 years and has been instrumental in Hoag’s growth.

    Dr. Harano is excited to be part of Hoag Medical Group because he feels this is the future of health care, with consolidated resources to provide better patient care with controlled medical costs. He notes, “Patients are fortunate as Hoag has the best equipment along with top physicians. Hoag Medical Group is taking an innovative approach to health care that will better serve the community.”

    Over the years, Dr. Harano has been Chief of Staff, served two terms on the Board of Directors,

    and volunteered on several committees, including playing a key role in establishing full time emergent specialists in the Emergency Room and requiring credentialed anesthesiologists

    be on staff.

    Dr. Harano claims he “fell” into medicine at the encouragement of a college friend who convinced him to take the admission test and apply to the University of Minnesota Medical School. Dr. Harano had been a chemistry major and planned to pursue organic chemistry. After he finished medical school he was drafted and served two years in the Air Force during the Vietnam War. He was inspired by the Chief of Medicine at the University of Minnesota to pursue Internal Medicine, and did his residency at UC Irvine before relocating with his family to Newport Beach.

    Once an avid skier, Dr. Harano now enjoys golf, fishing and hunting as well as senior slow-pitch softball. He also devotes time to his wife and family, including seven grandchildren.
