Remarkable Things
Remarkable Things is an annual publication of the CHOC Foundation that is given to first-time donors. It provides a general overview of CHOC, features fun facts and CHOC firsts, and highlights patients, programs and services.

Remarkable Firsts

CHOC has earned a place in Orange County medical history. Below are just a few of the remarkable medical “firsts” that have taken place here:

  • Orange County’s first bone marrow transplant.
  • The first children’s hospital in California to offer robotic surgery for children.
  • The first Orange County hospital to provide extracorporaeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), a heart-lung bypass procedure used on newborns suffering from potentially fatal respiratory problems.
  • The first hospital in the nation to use the LICOX brain oxygen monitor in young children with traumatic brain injuries.
  • The first and only facility in the nation to use high-frequency ventilation while transporting critically ill children.
  • The first and only Orange County hospital to perform pediatric open heart surgery.
  • Orange County’s first and only dedicated pediatric hematology/oncology unit.

Thank you for your interest in CHOC and CHOC at Mission. We greatly value your support.
