Ventura County Hospital to Close Obstetrics Unit

Posted on Friday, August 10, 2012 11:15am

A Ventura County hospital has announced plans to shut down it’s nearly four decades old obstetrics unit.

St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital, in Camarillo, will close the unit this fall, because of what officials call an insufficient demand for the services at the facility. Hospital officials say they will work to transfer as many staff members as feasible to sister hospital St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Oxnard, and will try to help find jobs for employees they don’t keep.
