New Continuing Care Center Groundbreaking in Ojai


Come Celebrate With Us

Recently, dignitaries and residents of the Ojai Valley gathered for a very special groundbreaking ceremony for the new Continuing Care Center (CCC) at Ojai Valley Community Hospital.

The gathered group was treated to memorable and personal words spoken from current residents, physicians and staff, and local family members who spoke about the great care and compassion they have received at the facility, and just how important the new facility will be to valley residents.

The new Continuing Care Center is slated to open early in 2018.
