Santa Cruz Sentinel

Dignity Health Dominican Hospital showed off a new endoscopy ultrasound suite Monday, a $2.1 million investment and the first in Santa Cruz to provide a less invasive way to diagnose problems in the digestive tract, pancreas and liver. About $1.2 million came in private donations.

Before, Dominican referred 150 patients a year to out-of-county facilities, according to Susan MacMillan, the hospital’s senior director of strategy and business development, who expects the service to attract 250 patients a year.
