Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) is committed to being a leading destination for children’s health by providing exceptional and innovative care. Affiliated with the University of California, Irvine, CHOC’s pediatric healthcare system includes two state-of-the-art hospitals and a regional network of primary and specialty care centers serving children and families in four counties. CHOC offers several clinical programs of excellence providing the highest levels of care for the most serious pediatric illnesses and injuries, physical and mental. CHOC’s research and innovation institutes are focused on translating real patient needs into real-world treatments so every child can live the healthiest and happiest life possible.
At CHOC, we are dedicated to providing patients the very latest breakthrough treatments available. Our efforts bring hope to patients with rare conditions, or conditions not responding to traditional treatments.
CHOC’s population health initiative is focused on keeping healthy kids healthy by actively engaging the community and collaborating with other institutions like the Orange County Department of Education. Focus areas include promoting whole-child wellness, care coordination, and improved data exchange.
At CHOC, we believe pediatric mental health treatment should be fully integrated with physical health treatment. It’s not always obvious when a child is struggling emotionally, but recognizing the symptoms and seeking early and effective mental health services are important for long-term health.
The CHOC Medical Intelligence, Information, Investigation, and Innovation Institute (Mi4) is dedicated to empowering data intelligence and medical innovation at CHOC, and driving innovation leadership in the international pediatrics community.
