In 2011, Children’s Hospital of Orange County has been ranked in eight specialties in U.S. News Media Group’s Best Children’s Hospitals rankings.

Radio Lollipop

In 2006, CHOC (a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital) teamed with G.O.T. Toyota to create an in-house radio station in order to provide comfort and entertainment for the hospital’s increasing number of extended stay patients.[3] Known as Radio Lollipop, the program allows children at the hospital to experience the fun and excitement of being on the air within hospital walls, and creates a unique interrelationship between patients.[4]

Mobile Giving Campaign

In 2008, Ryan Seacrest of Los Angeles based radio station KIIS FM hosted a live fundraising event for Radio Lollipop, asking listeners to donate by sending a text message to the short code 90999 with the keyword CHOC.[5] The station was flooded with mobile donations after G.O.T. Toyota President R.J. Romero told listeners that he would match donations up to $10,000. CHOC’s mobile donating campaign was created in partnership with the Mobile Giving Foundation and Mgive.[6]
