Preparing for the Future with a New Medical/Surgical
Casa Colina is pleased to announce the construction of a new Medical/Surgical Hospital Wing on its Pomona campus, adjacent to the existing Casa Colina Hospital for Rehabilitative Medicine. This new 31-bed, 38,220 sq. ft. Medical/Surgical Hospital Wing will give the new Casa Colina Hospital a total of 99 beds and is scheduled to open in 2015.
What Type of Surgical Care Will Be Provided?
Physicians who specialize in a wide range of procedures – from orthopedic and neurosurgery to gastroenterology, urology, spinal surgery, and more – will perform surgeries in our new state-of-the-art medical facility.
Unlike typical hospital settings, the new Medical/Surgical Hospital Wing will not have an emergency unit which means operating room schedules will not be affected by urgent or unplanned cases. And if any of Casa Colina Hospital's rehabilitation patients experience a medical setback, they will no longer need to be transported to another acute care hospital for stabilization. The new Medical/Surgical Hospital Wing will be equipped and staffed to handle these acute medical cases whenever needed.
Plus, we will be able to care for patients at earlier stages of their acute illness or injury before being discharged home or transferred to the existing rehabilitation wing. This will lead to better patient outcomes and the highest standards of health care.
The new Medical/Surgical Hospital Wing will offer:
- Six surgical intensive care unit beds
- 25 beautifully appointed private medical/surgical beds with full telemetry, patient lift systems, and private bathroom facilities
- Three surgical suites
- Robotic surgical equipment
- A gastroenterology procedure room
- Expanded diagnostic imaging
- Laboratory with microbiology services
- Electronic medical records
The new wing will open its doors in early 2015. Soon Casa Colina will care for approximately 2,000 more people on an annual basis, and will create nearly 200 new job opportunities for people in our community.
