Healing Courtyards campaign gets a boost in honor of a husband
Pam Santacroce has been an integral part of Dominican Hospital’s evolution—first as a nurse, then as an administrator, and later serving as a member of the Dominican Hospital Board and now the foundation board.
Pam’s late husband, Nello Santacroce, was there to support her through all the roles she served at the hospital and in their property management business. Like Dominican Hospital, Nello was never afraid to take the next step forward, to not only stay current with the times, but to venture out on the cutting edge.
“It has been an adventure to have lived with Nello, and to have leapt forward with Dominican Hospital,” says Pam. “They have both been an inspiration to me.”
To honor Nello and give back to the hospital, which they both loved, Pam made a substantial donation to Dominican’s Healing Courtyards Initiative. Because they lived by the ocean for many years and enjoyed the soothing, peaceful environment, Pam thought it fitting to have the meditation garden named in honor of her husband, Nello. Her significant gift for the meditation garden will provide the hospital’s patients and staff with a sense of peace, and serve as a symbol of the hospital’s focus on what matters most.
