Growing With Our Community: Patient Care Tower Opening Soon

The $70 million Patient Care Tower will include 144 private-care rooms and a wide range of both expanded and new services. Construction on Simi Valley Hospital’s new Patient Care Tower is anticipated to be complete in early 2008.

For more than 40 years, Simi Valley Hospital has provided high-quality health care services in a compassionate manner that reflects our neighbors-caring-for-neighbors philosophy.

Now, we’re anticipating completion of our latest commitment to our community: our $70-million Patient Care Tower building expansion.

At the heart of this new project is a completely new hospital that will:

  • Offer 144 private-care rooms.
  • Create an eight-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for babies born prematurely or with special medical needs.
  • Dedicate an entire floor to Women’s and Children’s Services.
  • Expand Intensive Care Unit capacity from 11 to 24 beds.
  • Provide space to accommodate future service additions, such as Cardiac Services and a new Gastroenterology (GI) Laboratory.

The tower is scheduled to be completed in early 2008. Watch for announcements in Your Health and in local newspapers about upcoming Patient Care Tower grand opening festivities.

Emergency Department Lobby Gets an Upgrade

Simi Valley Hospital recently completed an aesthetic renovation of its Emergency Department, including new ceramic floor tiles, carpeting, interior wall and counter finishes, and furniture. The goal of the work is to enhance the experiences of patients and guests in this most-used area of the hospital, which sees approximately 24,000 people annually.

The Emergency Department renovation is the first of a long-term, multi-phase project to expand the physical size of the facility and improve patient flow. Watch for more information about the Emergency Department expansion in future issues of Your Health.
