Since opening their doors in 1964, Children’s Hospital of Orange County has been exclusively committed to the health and well-being of children through clinical expertise, advocacy, outreach and research. With admissions growing by 90% over the last eight years, CHOC is growing to better accommodate the needs of the community’s children.

Recognized for extraordinary commitment to high-quality critical care standards, CHOC’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is the first in the United States to earn the Beacon Award for Pediatric Institute.
