Hospital changes ‘support healing’
Santa Ynez Valley News

Years of planning and construction are continuing at Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital, with a new in-patient wing running smoothly while the emergency room is being expanded to double its size. Radiology equipment has been replaced, all medical records have been scanned and digitized, surgical facilities will be expanded and the building’s exterior given a facelift. Ultimately, all the changes should “support healing,” so “the patient experience should be better,” said Vice President Wende Cappetta, the hospital’s administrator.
