Public, private hospitals expanding in Ventura
With the completion of its new $50 million replacement clinic in the fall, Ventura County Medical Center will finally put the capstone on its new campus.
In 1994, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors approved the county medical center’s “consolidation project,” a massive effort to replace and upgrade facilities. Since then, the public medical center’s inpatient psychiatric unit, medical examiner’s office, hospital emergency generator building, hospital lab and cafeteria building have already been completed, and now, only the replacement clinic and a parking structure await their finishing touches.
Construction on the clinic began in early 2008. Once complete, the five-story, 73,000-square-foot clinic will function as the hub of the newly consolidated campus.
