Cottage Health will be providing a limited number of tours of the new Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital to the community on Saturday, August 15, 2015, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Tours will visit selected areas of the hospital that highlight the architecture, arts, and services of the new building.
Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital is replacing all of its inpatient care facilities at an estimated cost of
$126 million. The new hospital’s healing environment will feature improved patient privacy with all private inpatient rooms. Expanded services include more than doubling the size of the Emergency Department for a total of 20 treatment rooms (compared to eight previously), a Center for Wound Management with four hyperbaric chambers (up from two), a total of six surgical suites (compared to 4 previously), the Cottage Center for Orthopedics and the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Program. A new medical office building will open in early 2016.
The new hospital’s architectural design is representative of the Goleta Valley area and will be both patient- and family-friendly. Visitors can enjoy a new Healing Arts program which will feature 280 pieces of art created by Central Coast artists.
Following the 1994 Northridge earthquake, the California Legislature mandated that all hospitals in the state be retrofitted or rebuilt to withstand a 6.0 earthquake. With no local, state or federal funding provided to meet this new seismic requirement, Cottage reached out to the community for vital support of fundraising campaigns to rebuild three hospitals.
Tours are available in English and Spanish and reservations are required. To make a reservation, call toll- free 1-888-999-8262.
