Thomas Fire – Update on CMHS Facilities

Ojai Valley Community Hospital & Continuing Care Center Update

At midnight last night, Community Memorial Health System made the decision to transfer the majority of our patients at Ojai Valley Community Hospital and our adjacent skilled nursing facility.  Although the fire never directly affected OVCH, the fire department advised us that the situation across the Ojai Valley was very fluid, and a shift or increase in the winds could impact our facilities.

At the time, plenty of transportation and assistance was available, so we made the decision to move our non-ambulatory patients.  A total of 48 patients were transferred to Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura and are resting comfortably.  27 patients remain safely at Ojai Valley Community Hospital.  Our skilled nursing facility (The CCC) has been completely vacated at this time.

Currently, Ojai Valley Community Hospital and its Emergency Department are fully operational.
