Tom and Vi Zapara Rehabilitation Pavilion
Loma Linda University Medical Center East Campus opened its new 24-bed rehabilitation hospital in July 2010. Our 30,000-square-foot hospital is the first rehabilitation facility in the Inland Empire designed for an evidence-based healing environment including its connection to nature, access to social support, variety of options, elimination of environmental stressors, and positive distractions. The result of this design is a healing, home-like facility that supports patients who are often hospitalized for a minimum of three weeks.
Features that contribute to the healing environment include spacious private rooms with patios, therapeutic walkways, healing gardens, an event park to feature concerts and programs, and an all-access playground. Patients will also be provided with gardening, art, music, and recreational therapy.
The Tom & Vi Zapara Rehabilitation Pavilion will allow patients to practice everyday activities with an adaptive apartment for therapy and a therapy gym. Recently unveiled were plans for PossAbilities Square, a replica town square to be constructed within the ground floor of the pavilion, which will be complete with modules of a grocery store, restaurant, and bank.
