The only dedicated pediatric healthcare facility for families in south Orange County

CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital serves as the only dedicated pediatric healthcare facility for families in south Orange County, the surrounding coastal areas and north San Diego County. Inside its doors, you’ll find an expert team of world-class physicians and nurses providing compassionate, innovative care to the most fragile of newborns to the most rambunctious of teenagers.

Dedicated pediatric emergency facilities

A collaboration between CHOC Children’s and Mission Hospital, the pediatric “wing” of Mission Hospital’s Emergency Department separates its high-acute treatment areas from its pediatric functions, providing a lively and unique identity apart from the existing hospital. Special attention was given to the use of colors, textures and images to create a soothing environment for children, diverting their focus to something fun and familiar rather than their fear of being in a hospital. Children needing hospitalization are admitted directly to CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

In collaboration with Mission Hospital’s Labor & Delivery Unit, neonatal care teams are able to be present during high-risk births, and can transport babies needing critical care — most often premature babies suffering from respiratory and circulatory problems — to the CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital NICU within minutes. With the latest technology and specialized care, even newborns weighing less than two pounds have a strong chance of growing up to lead normal lives.

Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)

In the PICU, the highest level of care is available for critically ill or injured children, including those who may need heart or lung monitoring or the attention of an intensive care specialist as the result of a trauma such as an automobile accident, near drowning or major surgery.

Child Life program

Child Life Specialists provide patients and their siblings with emotional and developmental-appropriate support to help minimize the anxiety they might be experiencing and help them gain an understanding of medical treatments with age-appropriate explanations and “medical play” with dolls and instruments. They also provide distraction during painful procedures.

Ronald McDonald Family Room and Sleep Room

Through a partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities, CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital features the Ronald McDonald Family Room and Sleep Room. In the Family Room, couches, television and DVD player allow families to take a break and relax, or gather to discuss their child’s progress. The Sleep Room, with slumber and showering accommodations, allows parents of NICU or PICU patients to spend the night with their child in the hospital.
