History

 

Founded by a group of community leaders who believed a hospital was needed in their community, Pleasant Valley Hospital was opened on July 29, 1974.

 The 60-bed community hospital – the most modern and unique medical facility in Ventura County – would not have existed if it weren’t for a group of dedicated, hard-working residents with the vision to see that no city can thrive if it has to rely on others for its most vital services.

Norman Gruber was hired to be the hospital’s first administrator and oversee many facets of the building project. Designed by architect James P. Lockett, the building has a unique shape, based on a method first used in early Roman architecture. The basic design element is a hexagon; the private patient rooms are clustered in a hexagonal arrangement around a nurses’ station, which allows the nurses to care for a greater number of patients with minimal walking.

In 1986, construction began on a 99-bed skilled nursing facility, which today functions as an extended care unit.

In 1993, Pleasant Valley Hospital merged with St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Oxnard, together representing the largest acute-care health organization in Ventura County. The two hospitals joined Catholic Healthcare West in 1997. Catholic Healthcare West became Dignity Health in 2012.

To find a doctor affiliated with St. John’s, please call 877.753.6248 or search online. Both services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
