McCarthy Building Companies broke ground on Children’s Hospital of Orange County’s (CHOC) Southwest Tower. The new tower is a nine-story, 330,000-square-foot outpatient facility that will house five floors of Department of Health Care Access and Information facilities, and four floors of clinics, offices and research areas.   

Designed to match CHOC’s Bill Holmes Tower, the Southwest Tower boasts bright colors and a kid-friendly feel. It will include a variety of futuristic technical characteristics, with advanced features that enable better telemedicine opportunities, interactive screens for patients and staff, digital check-in kiosks and wayfinding interior graphics.   

The Southwest Tower is scheduled to be completed in 2025.
