Message from the CEO
In 2015, we reached a new milestone at Casa Colina. Now, it is my absolute
pleasure to welcome you to Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare.
Our new name reflects Casa Colina's expanding continuum of care as
well as the many types of healthcare services we provide today. 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 that is currently under construction is a bold step to
go even further to fulfill these needs in our community and define our
future as a regional Center of Excellence in medical and rehabilitation services.
We understand that there are structural changes coming in how people receive
medical services. The Casa Colina Medical Office Building completed the
summer of 2013 and the new 31-bed hospital addition will help 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 will reinforce that tradition
by extending Casa Colina's renowned continuum of care. This new hospital
wing will be a place where the needs of our community and its physicians
can be met at the highest levels.
Casa Colina recognizes the importance of caring for every patient, one
by one. It is the leadership of 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 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 are building dynamic relationships with UCLA's Department of Neurosurgery,
San Antonio Community Hospital, Methodist 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 more than 10,600 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.
