History


Dignity Health — St. John's Hospital Camarillo, formerly known as St. John's Pleasant Valley Hospital and Pleasant Valley Hospital. was founded in 1974 by community leaders who believed a hospital was needed in the Camarillo community.

In 1986, construction began on a skilled nursing facility, which today functions as an extended care unit. In 1993, Pleasant Valley Hospital merged with St. John's Regional Medical Center, and the hospital name changed to St. Joh's Pleasant Valley Hospital. In 1997 the two hospitals joined Catholic Healthcare West, which became Dignity Health in 2012.

In 2015, the hospital received approval from the City of Camarillo Planning Commission to begin construction on a 72,342-square-foot addition to meet state-required seismic safety standards for acute-care facilities. The newly expanded acute care hospital opened its doors in December of 2018. The new hospital featured 50 all-new and private patient rooms, three new operating suites, and the first-ever cardiac catheterization lab in Camarillo.

In 2021 the St. John's Pleasant Valley Hospital's name was changed to St. John's Hospital Camarillo to better identify with the hospital's community.
