Dominican Hospital Pavilion 

Expanding your state-of-the-art hospital, right here in Santa Cruz.

Dominican Hospital has been committed to the health care needs of the Santa Cruz County community for generations. In an effort to continue to meet the needs of our growing community into the future, Dominican Hospital is proposing to remodel and update the hospital, including the addition of a parking structure.  Major components of the 84,000-square-foot expansion will include:

  • Construction of a 3-level parking garage 
  • Conversion of semi-private patient rooms to private rooms
  • Construction of additional operating rooms
  • Reconfiguration of the current emergency department

The project will be funded by Dignity Health; and there are also opportunities for private community contributions.
