Three-Story Addition Designed to Enhance Comfort and Healing
The new 69,000 SF, 3-story addition to St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital will further evolve the local comprehensive healthcare available to the Camarillo community. This hospital came out of the community in 1974 and this project is a continued investment in its residents. This addition was born out of necessity to comply with California’s SB 90 regulations requiring seismic compliance for all hospital buildings in the state within specified timelines and replaces acute care services from NPC-1 legacy hospital building.
The project will add 50-rooms that are twice the size of the current rooms, including a sofa and space for family members and visitors. The hospital recognizes that the healing process requires support from the family and loved ones. The rooms will now have space for modern equipment including workstations attached to the walls allowing nurses to use their computers from the bedside while facing the patient.
The expansion will also add a cardiac catheterization laboratory, three state-of-the-art surgical suites, pre- and post-anesthesia care units, a new pharmacy, a new chapel, a new kitchen and dining space, improved waiting areas and a new entrance to the current building.
