The Recuperative Care Center (RCC) is a 12-bed, 24-hour shelter-based medical respite program, with an average length of stay of 30 days. The RCC is managed by the County of Santa Cruz Health Services Agency’s Homeless Persons’ Health Project (HPHP), and a community nonprofit agency, the Homeless Services Center (HSC). The RCC provides support for recently hospitalized patients that are homeless, and no longer require in-patient hospital care, or SNF level recovery.

WellSpace health leads a collaboration of the hospital systems in Sacramento, community based organization and the county government–all whom have come together to create a short term lay in respite care program for patients discharging from a hospital who are experiencing homelessness. Thousands of patients have been served in this innovative program that has been replicated by other communities and has received statewide and national attention.
