Message from the CEO

Felice L. Loverso, Ph.D.Welcome to Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare. This is a unique place designed to provide an optimal environment to regain physical and cognitive function and reclaim the ability to live life to one's fullest potential. The 31-bed Medical-Surgical Wing expansion to Casa Colina Hospital opened on April 1, 2016, and is a bold step to go even further to fulfill the needs in our community and define our future as a regional Center of Excellence in medical and rehabilitation services.

We understand that there are ongoing structural changes in how people receive medical services. The opening of the Casa Colina Medical Office Building and addition of the Medical-Surgical Wing helps Casa Colina meet the challenge of those changes while remaining dedicated to our tradition of providing each patient with the best opportunity for medical recovery and rehabilitation success. These additions reinforce that tradition and extends Casa Colina's renowned continuum of care. This is a place where the needs of our community and its physicians can be met at the very highest levels.

Casa Colina recognizes the importance of caring for every patient, one by one. It is the leadership of our dedicated surgeons and physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation, and many other physician specialists, nurses, therapists and support staff, that helps us fulfill our mission: to provide individuals the opportunity to maximize their medical recovery and rehabilitation potential efficiently and effectively. We approach every patient with dignity, respect, and hope for the future. But we do not do this in isolation.

We have built dynamic relationships with UCLA's Department of Neurosurgery, San Antonio Regional Hospital, and many other organizations that create the healthcare network in our region. We continue to work actively with the American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association (AMRPA) as a leading west coast representative, advocating on behalf of the patients we serve and our community's needs.

We have guided thousands of people in countless ways through our distinct levels of care, serving nearly 12,000 individuals a year. Our continuum of care spans the broadest range of inpatient and outpatient services. It also includes long-term residential care and phenomenal experiences through our Outdoor Adventures program, as you will see on this website.

Thank you for visiting. Please let us know if there is any way we can be of assistance to you.
