Exclusive tour of the new CHOC Tower

You’ve seen the billboards alongside Orange County’s freeways. Maybe you’ve seen the construction going on next to CHOC Children’s in Orange–the new building getting taller and taller, taking shape. The CHOC Children’s tower will open in 2013 and will serve the children of Orange County in new and more efficient ways.

CHOC Children’s cares for over 250,000 children in our community every year and that number will expand when CHOC adds over 450,00 square feet of state-of-the-art pediatric services. Committed to safety and whole-family care, the new tower will bring all of CHOC’s services under one roof for the first time.

I was given the privilege of taking an exclusive tour of the facility for a segment of OC Family TV. The video will give a glimpse inside the tower still under construction. Jan Lansing from CHOC guides me through the new patient rooms, emergency room, pediatric surgical suites and paitent life areas.
