New Goleta Valley Hospital Opens Its Doors
KEYT3 - Santa Barbara

The new Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital opened its doors, and welcomed residents to its newly expanded facility on Patterson Avenue. The hospital is replacing all of its inpatient care facilities at a cost of $126 million.

The emergency room has doubled in size, and there are now six surgical suites.

Part of the rebuilding ensures that the hospital is earthquake safe.

The California legislature mandated that all hospitals be rebuilt to withstand a 6.0 earthquake following the 1994 Northridge quake.
