  • Replacement of roof
  • Installation of new air conditioning and heating units
  • Remodel of Intensive Care Unit
  • Internal strengthening of ceiling braces to meet seismic mandate deadlines

Phase 3

A New Skilled Nursing Facility - Cost $17 Million
CMHS Investment: $11.3 Million, Community Investment: $5.7 Million
IN PROGRESS

OVCH’s current skilled nursing facility, the Continuing Care Center (CCC), operates near full capacity year-round. Located in a community where demand for post-hospitalization rehabilitation and long-term care will only increase, the need for the CCC will continue to grow well into the future. Revenues from the CCC enable OVCH to subsidize its acute care and emergency services, preserving resources that are essential to our community’s health and well-being. However, the current CCC is an aging structure nearing the end of its useful life. Building a new skilled nursing facility will be the determining factor in ensuring the future of Ojai Valley Community Hospital.

New Continuning Care Center Features:
  • 75 beds - 7 Private Rooms and 34 2-Bed Rooms
  • Enlarged physical therapy space, with indoor and outdoor exercise areas
  • Landscaped to enhance the healing environment
