Children's Hospital of O.C. receives $100,000 donation
Children's Hospital of Orange County has received a $100,000 donation from Masimo Foundation for Ethics, Innovation, and Competition in Healthcare, the hospital announced.
One of the rapid medical-exam rooms in the emergency center of a new CHOC tower to open in 2013 will be named after Masimo, CHOC stated.
The Masimo Foundation was established in 2010 by Irvine-based Masimo Corp., a company that develops medical monitoring technologies to improve patient care.
"There is no doubt that children's hospitals around the world play a vital role in the care and survival of our future generations when they are at their most vulnerable moments," said Joe Kiani, chairman of Masimo Foundation for Ethics, Innovation, and Competition in Healthcare. "We are proud to be able to support CHOC as they continue to 'think globally and act locally' to care for our future generations."
CHOC's 22,000-square-foot emergency center will be the only dedicated pediatric emergency department in Orange County, according to the hospital. The center will feature 31 treatment rooms and three triage suites. The new 425,000-square-foot tower will house cutting-edge operating rooms as well as laboratory, pathology and imaging services, the hospital stated.
