THE KIWANIS FAMILY
CHOC CHILD LIFE WORKROOM PROPOSAL

In its continuing mission to nurture, advance, and protect the health and well-being of children, and to make Orange County and the surrounding areas the one of the safest and healthiest places for children in the nation. CHOC (Children’s Hospital of Orange County) respectfully requests that the Kiwanis Family (Region 3, Divisions 4, 30 and 41) consider making a philanthropic gift of $100,000 payable over a 5 year period.

This donation goes to supporting the Change CHOC, Change the World campaign and naming the Child Life Workroom in the new patient care tower. This generous gift will not only provide a place for the children to get away from their room and relax but will also provide a designated space for the Child Life Specialist to work.


The CHOC Story

One of CHOC’s core beliefs is that children are not small adults. They require highly specialized care from pediatric experts.  This belief is why hundreds of doctors from more than 90 hospitals refer children to CHOC including Hoag Memorial Hospital, Presbyterian Hospital, Saddle Memorial Medical Center and Whittier Hospital/Medical Center to name a few. CHOC never turns a child or family away for the lack of the ability to pay for treatment.

Since 1964, when CHOC Children’s first opened its door, the hospital has become a hub of regional pediatric healthcare. Today, CHOC is the 16th busiest hospital in the nation.  This increasing demand is pushing and pulling CHOC toward its destiny: to become a sustainable, world-class children’s hospital.

In order to become a world-class children’s hospital, CHOC launched the Change CHOC, Change the World campaign in May 2010. This $125 million campaign is comprised of three initiatives; build a state-of-the-art patient care tower, build a significant endowment; and an affiliation with UC Irvine and its school of medicine.

This campaign represents a critical opportunity for all of us to collectively make a statement about what we want for the children in our communities. For this reason, CHOC is building a modern, seven-story patient tower that will enable the hospital to provide the highest quality of specialized pediatric care and bring hope and peace of mind to children and families.

Beyond adding over 425,000 sq. ft. of space and then 100 new patient beds, the new tower will provide for the first time, dedicated pediatric surgery suites (until now CHOC has used the surgery suites at St. Joseph Hospital) and a state-of-the-art pediatric emergency department (also shared currently with St. Joseph Hospital) in Orange County for the first time. Most importantly, the new tower will be a place where sick children and families can find serenity and hope for healing from experts who understand their unique needs.
