Michael Ellingson speaks with Sandra Siepak about the Community Memorial Health System’s (CMHS) new Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura, CA.
What originated in 1902 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.
The Community Memorial Health System was established in 2005 when Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura merged with the Ojai Valley Community Hospital. Today CMHS is comprised of these two hospitals along with family-practice health centers serving various communities within Ventura County.
Their health system is a community-owned, not-for-profit organization. As such, they are not backed by a corporate or government entity, nor do they answer to shareholders. Rather, they depend on – and answer to – the communities they serve.
