Every year, CHOC Children’s growing team of physicians, nurses and staff have the privilege of caring for hundreds of thousands of babies, children, teens and young adults from Orange County and beyond. Some patients even travel from halfway around the world to seek treatment from CHOC specialists. This year, we opened our expanded neonatal intensive care unit featuring 36 private rooms, and we were honored to be recognized in seven specialties by U.S. News & World Report. Next year we’ll open our mental health unit, the county’s first inpatient program that can accommodate children younger than 12. Celebrate with us as we revisit some milestones and other highlights from the past year. We look forward to serving your families for many years to come.
