At Dignity Health, a key part of our mission is supporting the health of our communities in meaningful, measurable ways.
The California End of Life Option Act legally authorizes a physician to prescribe a lethal dose of a lethal medication so that a patient can end his or her life. The law allows health care individual clinicians to opt out of the activities authorized by the law. The law also allows hospital systems like Dignity Health to prohibit employees and others who work with us from taking part in these activities. In March, Dignity Health executive leadership approved a policy that states Dignity Health will not participate in the activities authorized under the act.
St. John's Hospital Camarillo’s more than 71,000 square foot expansion will enhance our community hospital’s ability to provide excellent state-of-the-art technologies to complement the excellent health care services our community has come to expect and deserve. Scheduled for completion in early 2018.
