Since the ceiling joist is centered in this location, get a ceiling fan rated pancake box, cut the sheetrock out to size, and screw it to the joist.
I can't imagine why they used the hook instead of just screwing the fan base to the stud. I would not have a problem not having a ceiling box only if you are installing a flush Mount fan that has that type of base.
