Meet Choco

With his loveable likeness, Choco, CHOC’s cherished mascot, has provided comfort to generations of children since he was born more than 55 years ago from the drawing board of famed Disney artist Bob Moore.

As CHOC grows and evolves, heading toward an exciting future, Choco is ready for a little makeover. But rest assured, our beloved bear will keep his heart and bandage – and of course, the unwavering commitment to children’s health that he shares with CHOC.

Check out new Choco merchandise the next time you’re at CHOC at Mission Hospital or the CHOC Gift Shop on the main hospital campus in Orange. An online store will be available soon.

Say hello to the new Choco!
