CHOC Children’s Launches Campaign to Fulfill Destiny of the Hospital

Leading Citizen- Advocates Stand Behind CHOC Children’s Vision
Leading Citizen- Advocates Stand Behind CHOC Children’s Vision

In 1964 an influential group of Orange County’s citizens came together to create Children’s Hospital Orange County. “Now, we are continuing in this tradition to help CHOC evolve and become better,” says Sandy Segerstrom Daniels, Honorary Chair of the Change CHOC, Change the World campaign.

Orange County has grown robustly since 1964, when CHOC Children’s first opened its doors. As the county swelled, more and more families turned to CHOC, developing it into the hub of a regional pediatric healthcare system, responsible for two million children—more than the child population in any one of 39 states.

With Daniels leading the way, committee members are becoming major citizen advocates for the campaign because they realize CHOC is at a pivotal moment in supporting children’s health in Orange County. The committee is creating awareness that there is nothing more important than the health and safety of our children— and that there is no substitute for CHOC Children’s Hospital in the marketplace. “We have this institution that is so incredible in our community,” says Daniels. “This is why I said ‘yes’ to becoming the honorary chair.”

Daniels’ life and her career as a leading business professional have been representative of her passionate advocacy for children. She is in her tenth year working with the CHOC Follies, helping to raise millions of dollars for CHOC. And two years ago, she worked with members of the Senate and Congress to establish September as National Child Awareness Month, making organizations serving youth a national priority.

Children Foundation, a nonprofi t organization with a mission to improve the lives of children by fostering collaboration between more than 450 children’s charities. The Festival’s logo of a colorful, revolving merry-go-round is especially poignant for the organization and for CHOC’s campaign.

“Like a carousel, if we all move in the same direction, we can build this new hospital and make Orange County one of the medically safest places for children in the nation,” says Daniels.

Daniels’ advocacy for Orange County is rooted in her family’s history of nurturing and giving back to the region’s business and arts. Over the decades, the Segerstrom family has turned its land holdings into one of the most successful shopping, commercial, and cultural centers in the country, founding South Coast Plaza and the Performing Arts Center. And with a campaign dedicated to turning CHOC into a premier children’s hospital, CHOC will be another major asset for the community of Orange County, Daniels says.
