Griff’s Electric, Inc. of Signal Hill, California would like to congratulate CHOC Hospital of Orange County for ranking in top of the nation, by US News & World Report for Best Children’s Hospital 2013-14. CHOC hospitals cater to kids under the age of 21 with a mission to provide high-quality and innovative care to the children of Orange County, CA and wherever else kids travel from to receive treatment.
In regards to pediatric cancer, CHOC is dedicated to treating the “whole child”, emotionally, physically and spiritually. They have dedicated teams to guide doctors, families and patients through the stressful times of dealing with cancer, and the healing and recovery process. “When a child is ill and needs hospitalization, we understand that the entire family is affected. Because we so strongly believe in allowing a child to be a child and creating a sense of normalcy through play, discovery and creativity, we are dedicated to offering the most comprehensive support programs in the region.” (http://www.choc.org/cancer/index.cfm?id=P00635)
With a $10 Million Dollar grant from Hyundai Motor America, its non-profit group, Hope on Wheels, CHOC is able to provide a bit of fun to help cancer-stricken kids cope with their out-patient chemotherapy treatments. CHOC has created a virtual experience room they call the “Infusionarium”. This high-tech chemotherapy treatment center offers kids a giant screen television and comfy lounge chairs to watch movies and play larger than life video games all while receiving chemotherapy treatments. Since the inception of the “Infusionarium”, parents are excited that kids are not focusing so much on the treatment, but on the fun and excitement of what is happening on the big screen. This experience has been touted in easing the onset of post-chemotherapy sickness one may encounter after treatment.
