Your Gifts at Work:
Neuroscience & Rehabilitation
Our success stories are your gifts at work
We measure success by how we help our donors make the most of their giving, and by the measurable difference their giving has made in healing lives and transforming communities. Here are just a few of the very successful ways philanthropic gifts are being used to benefit patients of California Pacific Medical Center in the areas of Neuroscience & Rehabilitation, and which we hope you will consider supporting:
- Stroke Telemedicine
- Stroke Care and Interventional Neuroradiology
- Acute Rehabilitation Center
- Archibald/Ehrenberg Rehabilitation Terrain Park
Your gift can save lives
Time is critical when caring for a patient who may be having a stroke. Smaller hospitals often lack the specialists to quickly diagnose strokes and administer lifesaving clot-busting drugs (thrombolytics). Through the Stroke Telemedicine Project, patients have access to CPMC's Comprehensive Stroke Care CenterOpens new window. Many lives have already been saved through telemedicine technology, and many more will be saved in the future thanks to generous funding to this project.

Stroke Care and Interventional Neuroradiology
Invest in this outstanding new arena of advanced technology and treatment
Philanthropy through CPMC Foundation supports the crucial work of the California Pacific Neuroscience Institute's Neurovascular and Neurointerventional Surgery Suite officially opened on October 5, 2009. One of only a handful nationwide, this unique NIR suite is a rare example of a combined Neurointerventional and Microvascular operating environment, where doctors have a range of options at their fingertips to treat diseases like stroke, carotid stenosis and cerebral aneurysms. These treatments can even be combined or used sequentially without displacing the patient.

Acute Rehabilitation Center
Add your support to this exciting new therapeutic healing environment
In September 2009, a new Acute Rehabilitation CenterOpens new window opened at the Davies Campus, with one floor dedicated to brain injury and stroke rehabilitation, and the other dedicated to spine injuries and general rehabilitation.
Every detail of this exciting new space was designed with rehabilitation in mind, including private patient rooms and common therapy areas. It also features a well-designed staff area with full electronic medical records capability, and a glassed-in collaboration area to protect patient privacy and keep noise to a minimum.

Archibald/Ehrenberg Rehabilitation Terrain Park
Help more patients get on the road to recovery
Since it opened in November 2007, The Archibald/Ehrenberg Terrain ParkOpens new window has become a staple in the course of therapy for inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services. Over these two years, hundreds of patients have benefited from the therapy they receive in this unique environment.
The Terrain Park was funded almost entirely by charitable contributions, including a generous donation from Dr. Kenneth C. ArchibaldOpens new window, the former Chair of Rehabilitative Medicine at California Pacific Medical Center and is named in honor of Dr. Archibald and his deceased partner, Robert Ehrenberg.
Because life is precious, we encourage giving to life and a lifetime of giving.
