Inpatient volume had more than doubled, and hospital referrals from four counties were in the hundreds – that’s what drove Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC Children’s) to build their new 425,000 sf patient care tower. Part of the hospital’s master campus expansion plan, it will house new and advanced pediatric services and meet capacity need for future generations. Located in Orange, California, the tower will include a new Emergency Department, surgery center, lab and imaging services – all with dedicated pediatric staff. “The new tower is a physical manifestation of our vision to achieve national recognition as a premier children’s hospital,” said Waldo Romero, CHOC Children’s Vice President of Facilities, Design & Construction.
