Comprehensive Care Center Renovation
216 N Third St, Lompoc, CA 93436 | Timeframe: May 10, 2015 - Jan 10, 2018
Members of the Lompoc Hospital District Foundation are actively raising money to help give the 110-bed Comprehensive Care Center a major makeover. The foundation is now more than a year into its capital campaign toward the much-anticipated renovation project. Foundation President Alice Milligan is reaching out into the community to urge donations to the $1.5 million campaign, noting that most of the rooms have not been remodeled since the building opened more than 40 years ago.
The Center is an 110-bed facility opened in 1975 to provide local access to long-term care service for residents of the Lompoc Valley. Soon after the opening, the facility’s 74 beds were full and the demand for long-term care services became obvious. In 1985, 36 beds were added and were immediately filled. The center’s occupancy rate is currently at 96 percent. The center’s rooms have had had very few improvements in the past 30 years and are desperately in need of an upgrade.
Among the major donors are the Santa Barbara Foundation, the Lompoc Valley Community Healthcare Organization, the LVMC Women’s Auxiliary and the LVMC Employee Council. The CCC opened in 1975 to provide local access to long-term care service for residents of the Lompoc Valley. The center’s rooms have had had very few improvements in the past 30 years and are desperately in need of an upgrade. When the funds are raised, every patient room will get a major overhaul, from furnishings to the addition of Wifi.
In the past few years, LVMC has paid for the upgrading of flooring, remodeling of nursing stations, painting and new artwork. The Foundation fundraising will pay for the modernization of the patient rooms at an estimated cost of about $25,000 per room.
These rooms are in dire need of attention. Having a facility like this is so important. Our community members deserve to have these rooms improved.
