Many cool things have happened at CHOC Children’s since it opened in 1964. And if you ask me, I think the opening of the Bill Holmes Tower this year is at the top of my list.

The seven-story tower tripled the size of CHOC’s former campus in Orange, and its opening added a host of new services to CHOC’s offerings. It’s vibrant and colorful, and I bet it would look beautiful from a tall treetop. Thank you, CHOC for building it!
