Serving Those in Need
Our mission is straightforward: To nurture, advance and protect the health and well being of children. That’s why at CHOC Children’s Hospital in Orange and CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital, we are dedicated to working cooperatively—assisting and enriching existing services as well as developing programs to benefit the families of Orange County. Over two million children across four counties count on CHOC to be here when they need us most—regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Read our 2013-2014 Community Benefit Plan
