One-Year Anniversary Celebration Held Today for New Casa Colina Hospital
Pomona, CA…Casa Colina's Board of Directors and President and CEO held a special celebration today to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the opening of the new Casa Colina Hospital.

President and CEO Felice L. Loverso, Ph.D., personally served over 400 complimentary lunches in the hospital cafeteria to physicians and Casa Colina staff members, as well as patients and their family members. Dr. Loverso stated, "I wanted to do this to express my personal thanks to our many physicians and employees for their dedication and perseverance during our first year in the new hospital building. This is truly a special and exciting day for Casa Colina."

The 68-bed acute rehabilitation hospital was opened last March 2005 and has operated at capacity ever since. The hospital claims a unique position in the field of rehabilitation due its physician-driven model - physician specialists, who collaborate closely with rehabilitation professionals, direct patient care. Its staff of over 200 prominent physicians directs the areas of physical therapy, occupational therapy, respiratory therapy, speech therapy, aquatic therapy, and more.

Casa Colina Centers for Rehabilitation is an independent, not-for-profit community healthcare provider located in eastern Los Angeles County. For 70 years it has provided physical rehabilitation services to people from all over the world.
