About Us

What originated in 1901 as a single hospital serving its neighbors has today grown into an expansive healthcare system that touches the lives of individuals throughout Ventura County and beyond.

Community Memorial Health System, established in 2005 when Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura merged with Ojai Valley Community Hospital, is comprised of these two hospitals along with 11 family-practice health centers (Center for Family Health) serving various communities within Ventura County.

Our health system is a community-owned, not-for-profit organization. As such, we are not backed by a corporate or government entity, nor do we answer to shareholders. Rather, we depend on - and answer to - the communities we serve.

Guiding us on this esteemed mission is a volunteer and diverse Board of Trustees that represents a cross section of leaders in our community, and who govern Community Memorial Health System with a focus aimed on what is best for our citizenry.

The mission of Community Memorial Health System is a continued dedication to provide the finest quality health services in a caring and efficient environment. While at the same time, maintaining our vision of being the regional health system of choice for patients, physicians and employees. We value a collaborative spirit of excellence, compassion, respect and integrity, with an eagerness to be a valued community treasure.
