Casa Colina to open new medical surgical wing
Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare, is pleased to announce the opening of its new state-of-the-art Medical Surgical Wing, a 38,220-square-foot, highly technical addition that will accommodate an additional 2,300 patients annually. It will also employ an additional 160 staff members at Casa Colina, an already-established Center of Excellence in medical and rehabilitation services. The Medical Surgical Wing will open on Friday, April 1, 2016.
“Casa Colina is thrilled to announce the opening of its much-awaited Medical Surgical Wing,” said Felice L. Loverso, PhD., president and CEO of Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare. “For more than 75 years, Casa Colina has been highly regarded for its rehabilitation services, and we are proud of its recent ranking by Modern Healthcare as the 13th largest rehabilitation provider in the United States. With the new Medical Surgical Wing addition, Casa Colina will further meet its goals of providing the highest level of patient-centered medical and surgical care available anywhere in the region.”
With foresight in early 2015, Casa Colina announced its organization name change from Casa Colina Centers for Rehabilitation to Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare in order to better reflect its breadth of specialized medical and surgical services now offered with the addition of the Medical Surgical Wing.
Casa Colina Hospital’s new Medical Surgical Wing is located adjacent to the existing Acute Rehabilitation Wing on its 20-acre Pomona, Calif. campus. Its offerings are the culmination of specialists and surgeons from top hospitals throughout the region and country, creating a preferred surgical facility for physicians who specialize in a wide range of procedures, from orthopedic and neurosurgery to gastroenterology, urology, and more. Features include three state-of-the-art surgical suites, a six-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU), 25 private medical/surgical beds with patient lift systems and private bathrooms, a procedure room, and much more.
