CHOC at Mission Celebrates Completion of New Pediatric Emergency Department

On April 5, more than 200 supporters joined together at CHOC at Mission to celebrate the completion of the new pediatric wing of CHOC at Mission and Mission Hospital's Emergency Department and Trauma Center. The pediatric wing represents the first phase of the massive expansion project designed to increase the size of the facility and provide the best possible medical care to patients.

The new pediatric wing is separate from the Emergency Department's high-acute treatment areas, and features a fun, unique identity apart from the adult area. It includes 11 treatment rooms, including one for orthopedics, a family-friendly waiting room, and a child life specialist to monitor children's activities at an incorporated workstation.

Special attention to the use of colors and textures was given to ensure a soothing environment for children, diverting their focus to something fun and familiar rather than their fear of being in a hospital. A television, videos and games are available in the waiting area to engage children while waiting.

The pediatric wing, also featuring a "Fast Track" element, will serve more than 25,000 children annually.

The construction of the new pediatric wing was made possible through the generosity of numerous supporters. CHOC wishes to thank the following key contributors: The John and Tracey Duden Family; The Jeff and Suzy Elghanayan Family; Jake and Marie Griffith in memory of Grandpa Agbisit; Fariborz Maseeh and The Massiah Foundation; TheWolfe Family; and CHOC's Queen of Hearts Guild, Tres Osos Guild and Tinkerbell Guild.
