Simi Valley Hospital

Built in 1965, Simi Valley Hospital & Health Care Services is the only hospital in its community of 125,000 people, located about 45 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.

The hospital offers a full range of services, and is known for its high-tech, customer-friendly outpatient services facility; the Nancy Reagan Breast Center, which offers the most comprehensive breast cancer detection and treatment in Ventura County; and Ask-A-Nurse, a free community phone line which provides answers to callers’ health questions and referrals to area physicians.

Because we’re a not-for-profit Christian hospital, everything we do is aimed at meeting community needs. Our revenues never go to investors: they are invested right back into improvements for our hospital, where they directly benefit patients and people like you, who live in Simi Valley and Moorpark.

In fact, we help the community more than you may realize. Perhaps you’ve called Ask-A-Nurse, our free health advice line, about your child’s spider bite at 10:30 p.m.

Maybe you’ve had your blood pressure checked at one of our many free screenings, or learned how to cope with stress at a free community lecture.

In these, and so many other ways — big and small — we’re there for you and your community.

What’s especially rewarding is that even as we give to the community, the community gives to us. In an average year, we are very fortunate to receive help from more than 350 volunteers, who donate 38,250 hours of their time. These dedicated helpers enable us to serve the community that much better.

In the end, while it’s impossible to measure the actual value of the many ways we benefit your community, we do know that it adds up to more than $40 million every year. We’re proud to be making such a significant difference, and we intend to give back even more in years to come.
