Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital is a 519-bed acute care teaching hospital and trauma center, the largest of its kind between Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area. The hospital was founded in 1888 by 50 women determined to provide a healthcare facility for the growing community of Santa Barbara.
Now with annual admissions of more than 20,000 patients, nearly 73,000 emergency department visits, and 2,400 births, Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital is renowned for the breadth of its services.
All patient registration for Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital is now located at the Virgil Elings Lobby. For your convenience, parking services are available.
To maintain hospital safety for ongoing care, Cottage Health continues to use both Public Health Department recommendations and the current community transmission rate in making decisions on temporary visitor limitations.
