If you thought CHOC Children’s first time capsule was a hoot, wait to you see the second one. That’s right! CHOC has made two time capsules in its near 50-year history!
Following the completion of construction surrounding what is now known as the hospital’s North Tower in 1993, CHOC staff filled a large tubular trove with memorabilia that would one day provide future generations with a snapshot into the hospital’s history and a flavor of the 1990s.
The capsule was placed in an area that is now near the hospital’s emergency department, and was recently unearthed during construction of the Bill Holmes Tower.
The items included printed materials like brochures and pamphlets, lots of pictures, news clips and video tapes. Also, as part of the project, patients at the time got to select items that they wanted included in the time capsule.
