Is there any ice rinks by the hospitals? (I know weird question)

  1. My boyfriend and I would like to travel to California. I am a NICU nurse and he works in an Ice Rink( as a coach, zamboni driver, maintainence, etc.) So I was seeing, from people who live in Cali, if there are any ice rinks near a hospital. If so, which hospital? Do they take travel nurses?

    In socal, there is Anaheim Memorial that is near 2 ice rinks - both in Anaheim. The rink names are Anaheim Ice & KHS Ice Arena. Not sure if the hospital takes travelers. There is also a rink in Yorba Linda and there is a Kaiser facility nearby (still Anaheim I think). Hope this helps.

    I forgot about CHOC in Orange County. It is a really well known children's hospital. It is about 15 minutes from the ice rinks in Anaheim.

    Redding has one - it is at Big League Dreams and as far as I know it is used primarily for hockey.

    It's not a weird question at all.
    In Northern California (San Jose area) There are a couple of ice facilities.
    The Ice center in Downtown, (10th street) and an ice center in Cupertino
    (on Wolfe road). There may even be on more in San Jose. You may also try the San Jose arena (HP Pavilion) as thats where the San Jose Sharks play (our hockey team).

    All of these locations are easily close to the following hospitals

    Community Hospital of Los Gatos
    Good Samaritan Hospital
    Santa Clara Valley Medical Center

    These are a little further away
    Stanford/ Lucile Packard Children's
    El Camino Hospital
    I know that all of the hospitals will and have used travel nurses in their Nicu's

    Hope this helps...

    There is an ice skating rink, called Iceland in Berkeley that is very close to Alta Bates Hospital. There is also one in Oakland that is close to Summit hospital.
