Dignity Health Medical Group in ventura opens womens health center

Dignity Health Medical Foundation today announced the grand opening of their new Women's Health Center to serve the growing health care needs of Oxnard and the surrounding communities.

Located at 1700 N. Rose Avenue, Suite 280 in the Medical Pavilion at St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Oxnard, the new center has nine exams rooms plus one procedure room and features the latest obstetrics and gynecological (OB/GYN) technology including ultrasound and other patient care equipment. Additionally, the hospital, lab, and other imaging services are all located nearby for easy access and patient convenience.

“From well-women care to pregnancy and delivery, we are dedicated to providing an integrated approach to women’s health,” said Cecilio Murillo, Director of Operations for Dignity Health Medical Group in the Ventura region. “Our new Women’s Health Center will offer patients a comfortable and trusted environment along with access to the latest in medical techniques and surgical technologies.”

Dignity Health Medical Group Ventura region OB/GYN’s Nicole Abell, DO and Afshan Ghiai Fatemi, MD will be exclusively located the new center with room to add an additional OB/GYN in the future. They will also be joined by nurse practitioner Sarah Abraham, NP in May 2017.

Obstetric services and support offered at the Women’s Health Center include a full range of prenatal and postnatal care. Gynecological services care for women through all stages of life – from adolescence to menopause and beyond, including pelvic health, well-women exams, stress management, and more. Additionally, as board-certified surgeons, Dr. Abell and Dr. Ghiai Fatemi are trained in the full spectrum of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, da Vinci robotic surgery, and mini-laparoscopy.

With this opening, the previous office location at 1700 N. Rose Avenue, Suite 210 will no longer see OB/GYN patients. However, family medicine and other primary care services will remain at that location.

Along with local affiliated Dignity Health hospitals (St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital and St. John’s Regional Medical Center), Dignity Health Medical Group, a service of Dignity Health Medical Foundation, offers an integrated care delivery system in the Ventura region that provides high quality, compassionate care in family medicine, internal medicine, infectious disease, OB/GYN, hematology and oncology, neurology, pediatrics, and rheumatology.
