Hoyle volunteers with Helping Florence Flourish and is involved with the local, state, and national medical societies, particularly with the young physicians section and the Doctor of the Day program, which is designed to increase the presence of the medical profession in the eyes of SC lawmakers.  He and his wife, Betsy, enjoy going to the YMCA with their daughters, gardening, and running with their dog.
