Santa Cruz Sentinel

Dominican Hospital officials showed off a new $12.6 million acute rehabilitation unit to treat stroke and head injuries Tuesday, thanking donors for supporting the state-of-the-art project.

The 20-bed wing, built in a former oncology unit on the hospital’s second floor, will replace Dominican’s rehab campus at 610 Frederick St., in operation since 1992. The new facility meets state seismic safety standards adopted in 1994 after the Northridge earthquake. It is expected to open in February.
