Catalina Island Medical Center's skilled nursing patients will each have the opportunity to visit the new Ada Blanche Wrigley Schreiner Building of the Catalina Island Museum. Devin Thompson, Director of Development welcomed Estelle McKeown and Isabelle Lopez along with CIMC Activities Coordinator Katherine Stone to the Catalina Island Museum recently. Activities Coordinator Katherine Stone will arrange for each long term care patient to have a personal "day at the museum" in the coming weeks.

"The residents are particularly interested in Catalina history", she shared. Jason Paret, CIMC CEO agrees, "this is a great opportunity for our patients." The new museum is handicap compliant with a "plein air" exhibition, beautiful views and terraces on the second level accessible by elevator.

The Catalina Island Museum offers the best in art and history exhibitions, music and dance performances, and the finest in silent, documentary and international film.
The museum is open daily from 10 am - 5 pm at 217 Metropole Avenue in Avalon.

Catalina Island Medical Center's vision is to be the destination for excellence in patient centered care and health enrichment.
