Woody transport van

If you require medical transportation, why not do it in style? We designed our custom “Woody” Wheelchair Van to bring some Santa Cruz spirit to each of your appointments. Meet our wonderful van driver, Sabrina – she’s as lovely as they come.

Cleaner Air with Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization

We’ve installed a proven HVAC system to help clean the air in our facility. Inspired by naturally occurring ions in nature, our use of the patented needlepoint bipolar ionization technology uses the HVAC as a delivery system to release ions into the airstream. These ions are proven to reduce certain viruses and bacteria in the air (see Third-Party Studies).
