Dominican Hospital Foundation Sponsorship
For the second year in a row, Chaminade Resort & Spa has donated $10,000 to Dominican Hospital Foundation, joining its esteemed Circle of Hope as a partner in the hospital’s future.
The Chaminade-Dominican Hospital partnership supports many projects including the innovative $2.8 million healing gardens renovation debuting in 2017; state-of-the-art equipment and other on-going improvements.
Dominican Hospital’s renovation will create Zen-like community gardens viewable from all patient rooms, incorporating the healing power of nature with the excellent care they and their doctors provide to patients. Each courtyard will have a different theme (redwoods, ocean), reflecting the harmony of the Santa Cruz community and its holistic roots (as does Chaminade Resort’s new renovations).
In addition to Chaminade's $10,000 donation, the resort also provides meeting space for hospital functions or board meetings when needed as well as accommodations for visiting physicians. Because of the resort's close proximity to the hospital, the resort offers exclusive room rates for families traveling out of state to visit patients at Dominican Hospital. Chaminade also supports the hospital’s annual golf tournament and fundraising events.
The Dominican Hospital donation is part of Chaminade Resort & Spa’s and Benchmark Hospitality International's ongoing Hometown Hospitality Initiative to give back to the resort’s community. Chaminade’s employee Culture Committee meet to decide on local projects to support, raising money and donating their time.
With this 2016 donation to Dominican Hospital, Chaminade Resort & Spa proudly demonstrates its commitment to the Santa Cruz community as part of the Benchmark mission.
