The Foundation completed their campaign, “Operation Renovation: Enhancing Our Healing Environment” in 2017. This 3-year project raised over $800,000 to renovate the corridors, waiting area, two nurses’ stations, and 26 patient rooms in the main hospital, including the ICU. High-grade easy-maintenance vinyl replaced the carpeting, walls got a fresh coat of paint, and hand railings were installed in the hallways. The patient rooms were equipped with new state-of-the art beds and were refurbished with new flooring, paint, furniture, and bathroom upgrades. The two quad rooms were equipped with individual wall unit televisions per bed. Funds were raised through the Foundation’s annual Dinner Dance Fundraisers and a generous grant from the Monterey Peninsula Foundation.
New Women’s Center
New OB Department: The Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital Women’s Center opened in December 2013 with 13 labor and delivery suites, newborn nursery, and a self-contained operating room on the first floor.
Women’s Diagnostic Imaging Center on the second floor opened in the summer of 2014. It includes digital mammography, digital stereotactic breast biopsies, bone densitometry, radiologist reading room, and echocardiography. Also housed on the second floor are the physicians’ sleep rooms and the McCullough Resource Center.
The Foundation’s 5th Annual Dinner Dance was the kick-off for the fundraising campaign with a goal to raise $300,000 to help equip the new Women’s Center. Over $500,000 was raised by the Foundation from the 2-year effort with many donors naming rooms within the new facility. Foundation funds helped purchase equipment on both floors.
New Emergency Department
The Foundation successfully raised $500,000 for state-of-the-art equipment in the New Emergency Department which opened in December 2010. The new ER includes three trauma bays, eleven private treatment rooms, the latest digital diagnostic imaging, and a helipad.
Outpatient Surgery Center
The Outpatient Surgery Center was completed in the summer of 2005. The 7,000 square foot center features three state-of-the-art surgery suites, large pre- and post-op areas with two private recovery rooms. The Foundation raised $400,000 through The Campaign for Technology and Innovation with the funds used to purchase new equipment in the Surgery Center.
