Casa Colina Centers for Rehabilitation Announces Organization Name Change to Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare


New Name Reflects Expanding Continuum of Care and Services at New Medical/Surgical Hospital

POMONA, Calif., Feb.11, 2015 — Casa Colina Centers for Rehabilitation, a leading rehabilitation hospital and specialized healthcare service provider, is pleased to announce that it has changed its name to Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare. The new name better reflects the breadth of its current and projected services as it continues its position as a regional Center of Excellence in medical and rehabilitation services in its community and the healthcare industry.

"Casa Colina has been highly regarded for its broad range of rehabilitative services for more than 75 years. Now we've reached a new milestone," said Felice L. Loverso, PhD., president and CEO of 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. Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare 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."

Casa Colina's name change is due in part to its 31-bed medical/surgical hospital currently under construction adjacent to its acute rehabilitation unit. The new facility will provide a new opportunity to meet the specialized surgical and medical needs of individuals in its own community. The new 38,220-square-foot hospital will offer six surgical intensive care unit beds; 25 private medical/surgical beds with full telemetry and patient lift systems; three surgical suites featuring minimally invasive surgical equipment; a gastroenterology procedure room, and much more.

The Casa Colina name change and scheduled new facilities align with its vision to lead and continuously redefine a patient-centered approach for those requiring highly specialized, medically driven levels of care. For the latest updates on Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare, visit

About Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare

Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare was founded in 1936 in Chino, Calif., under the leadership of Frances Eleanor "Mother" Smith and other community leaders and physicians to provide rehabilitative care to children with polio. In the early 1950s, when polio was at epidemic proportions, a plan was developed to build a new hospital in nearby Pomona, Calif. In 1959, the new hospital was completed, and Casa Colina expanded its medical and physical rehabilitation services to concentrate on treating people of all ages and disabilities resulting from neurological and/or orthopedic conditions. In recent years, Casa Colina has renovated its entire 20-acre Pomona campus to build a continuum of rehabilitative care unmatched in the Western United States. This includes a state-of-the-art acute rehabilitation hospital, outpatient center, post-acute residential rehabilitation center, children's services, adult day health care, specialized physician clinics, diagnostic imaging, ambulatory surgery center, outdoor recreation program, and other highly specialized services. The new Casa Colina Medical Office Building opened on the campus in June 2013, and construction of a 31-bed medical/surgical hospital addition is currently underway with a scheduled opening in late summer 2015.
