The Foundation’s current campaign is “Operation Renovation: Enhancing Our Healing Environment.” This is a 3-year project to raise funds to renovate the corridors, waiting area, and 26 patient rooms in the main hospital.
With the money raised at the 2013 Foundation Dinner Dance, the main hospital got a new look. High-grade easy-maintenance vinyl replaced the carpeting, walls got a fresh coat of paint, and hand railings were installed. Additional work completed in Operation Renovation was the refurbishment of five patient rooms in the former OB with new state-of-the art beds, flooring, paint, furniture, and bathroom upgrades, thanks to a grant from Monterey Peninsula Foundation.
With the funds from the 2014/2015 Dinner Dances, ten more rooms have been completed, including four in ICU and the quad with individual wall unit televisions per bed. The successful 2016 Dinner Dance Fundraiser provided the final funds to refurbish the remaining seven rooms which will wrap up Operation Renovation. The work is scheduled for completion July/August 2017.
