A Spotlight on CHOC
Since 1964, CHOC has been committed to providing the highest quality medical care to Orange County’s children. CHOC is more than a hospital: we are a pediatric healthcare system that promotes not only healing, but journeys to wellness. Our regional pediatric healthcare network includes a state-of-the-art 334-bed main hospital facility in the city of Orange and a hospital-within-a hospital in Mission Viejo. We offer many primary and specialty care clinics, serving more than 250,000 children annually, along with more than 100 additional programs and services, a pediatric residency program and five centers of excellence: the CHOC Heart, Neuroscience, Orthopedic, Research and Hyundai Cancer institutes.
As a nonprofit organization, CHOC is dedicated to ensuring that the best care is available to every family in need. Powered by community philanthropy, we create and maintain innovative programs and practices that help children reclaim their childhoods.
Through the COVID years, CHOC has been able to swiftly mobilize new resources and systems that accelerate solutions. Our ability to respond to the pandemic has been vital because its lingering effects have exacerbated problems of isolation and depression in children of all ages, as we explain below.
CHOC’s commitment to innovative, family-centered care would not be possible without the generosity of our supporters. Since CHOC’s beginnings, the CHOC Foundation has played a key role in ensuring that every gift creates the impact that each contributor intends.
By partnering with community leadership, the CHOC Foundation raises awareness and funds that are instrumental to CHOC’s pediatric healthcare system.
