In April 2013, Dominican Hospital opened a new state-of-the-art inpatient Acute Rehabilitation Unit. Located on the second floor of the main hospital at 1555 Soquel Drive in Santa Cruz, California, the unit is comprised of 20 private rooms -- two of which are outfitted with a unique patient lift system.
To help facilitate healing, rooms are equipped with an interactive television that features internet access, electronic communication boards and a soothing ambience. The unit has its own dedicated gym including assistive ambulation technologies.
The unit also has a patient and family recreation room and dining room that allows patients and families to enjoy music, movies and other activities. An outdoor patio is available so patients and families can enjoy some fresh air.
