by Kerrin Piche Serna and Tom Vasich, University Communications | February 1, 2009

As UC Irvine Douglas Hospital prepared to open its doors to patients in March 2009, caregivers discussed how the new facility strengthens their ability to provide advanced healthcare.

From larger operating rooms equipped with the latest technology to a meditation/prayer room that offers a soothing refuge for families and visitors, UC Irvine Douglas Hospital is designed with patients’ comfort and well-being in mind.

Staff members featured in this video are:

  • Tudy Trgovac, patient relations manager, describing the patient experience
  • Dr. Mark Linskey, surgical neuro-oncologist, discussing neurosurgery services
  • Susan Gallitto, neonatal nurse, talking about the expanded Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
  • The Rev. Jon Wetterholm, pastoral care director, speaking on the meditation/prayer room
