Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) was recently honored with the Gold Award in the 2007 Aster Awards competition, an elite competition recognizing the nation's most talented healthcare professionals for excellence in advertising. CHOC's entry - "CHOC - Light," a television commercial, scored in the top 5 percent.

With approximately 3,000 entries, participants in the Aster Awards compete against similarly sized organizations from across the United States. Judging criteria include creativity, layout and design, typography, production quality, knowledge transfer and overall excellence.

Entries were judged by a diverse panel of individuals who are considered experts in healthcare marketing. All winners are posted on www.AsterAwards.com.

Named one of the best children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report (2014-2015) and a 2013 Leapfrog Top Hospital for the highest quality of care, Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC Children's) is exclusively committed to the health and well-being of children through clinical expertise, advocacy, outreach, education and research that brings advanced treatment to pediatric patients. Affiliated with the University of California, Irvine, CHOC’s regional health care network includes two state-of-the-art hospitals in Orange and Mission Viejo, many primary and specialty care clinics, a pediatric residency program, and four clinical centers of excellence - the CHOC Children’s Heart, Neuroscience, Orthopaedic and Hyundai Cancer Institutes..

CHOC earned the Gold Level CAPE Award from the California Council of Excellence, the only children’s hospital in California to ever earn this distinction, and was awarded Magnet designation, the highest honor bestowed to hospitals for nursing excellence.  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 Critical Care Excellence.
