Dignity Health St. John’s Hospitals Prepare for Reopening Ambulatory and Outpatient Diagnostic Services


Breast imaging, CT, MRI, interventional cardiology and radiology, and lab will begin providing service

OXNARD, CA – May 1, 2020 – St. John’s Regional Medical Center (SJRMC) and St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital (SJPVH), are preparing to safely resume laboratory, interventional radiology, and imaging services following guidance from national health officials and clinical associations.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, services were limited, and hospital operations focused on emergent services and preparations for a possible surge of COVID-19 patients. In taking steps to resume various hospital and outpatient services, St. John’s Hospitals are using criteria that are based on guidance from our local and state partners.

“We continue to take significant steps to ensure the safety and care of our patients, staff, and physicians,” says Robert Streeter, MD, Chief Medical Officer of St. John’s Regional Medical Center. “To provide the best care during this pandemic, and despite moving forward on resuming some hospital operations, existing safety precautions like limiting visitation and universal masking for staff and patients will remain,” adds Streeter. “This will be a gradual process, with the most urgent services being prioritized using a process created by our clinical teams.”

Safely resuming these services is one of the best ways we can help our communities heal, as they are critically important to patients.

Locations that will reopen are:

  • Rolling Oaks Radiology—Camarillo
  • Rolling Oaks Radiology—Oxnard
  • Rolling Oaks Radiology—Oxnard Women’s Center
  • Rolling Oaks Radiology—St. John’s
  • Rolling Oaks Radiology—Ventura
  • St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital Outpatient Radiology
  • St. John’s Regional Medical Center Outpatient Radiology
