Dominican Hospital Foundation

Organization Mission

To respond and support the changing health care needs of the people within the area served by Dominican Hospital.

The Big Idea 2024:
Wellness on Wheels:
Dominican Hospital's Mobile Wellness Clinic

Our Mobile Wellness Clinic is provided by a multidisciplinary team of nurse practitioners, allied health professionals, and clinic coordinators. Operating Monday through Friday at no cost to patients, the program targets the underserved and uninsured population countywide.

Mobile units help reduce emergency room visits and prevent chronic conditions from advancing to the degree that patients need more intensive and higher-cost care, often in a hospital setting. With your support, we aim to expand services to enhance the level of care provided to Santa Cruz County outside the hospital’s walls.

Wellness on Wheels is about more than just health care. It’s about supporting our community, and empowering patients to take control of their health and well-being.

I, like many millions of Americans, could not afford health insurance. I had a preexisting condition as a professional singer and vocalist...I found the mobile clnic. They were just wonderful. They managed my condition and now I can do four-hour gigs, I can tour. I basically owe my life to them.
