Santa Cruz is the quintessential beach town. Here, you enjoy life among the most beautiful coastal beaches and redwood forests of California. It was here that Hawaiian royalty first introduced surfing to the mainland?and locals and visitors alike have been riding the waves ever since. Not far from the surf break, music and laughter fill the air at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, the West Coast's only remaining seaside amusement park. A few blocks from the beach is Santa Cruz's newly renovated downtown. The pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined streets are filled with vibrant shops and galleries, outdoor bistros and sidewalk musicians?all in keeping with Surf City's offbeat personality. At Dominican Hospital, you can truly change people’s lives while living yours with a strong sense of meaning and finding that much-needed balance you deserve.
