(THOUSAND OAKS, CA) – The purchase of Thousand Oaks Surgical Hospital (TOSH) by Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), owner of Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center, was completed effective today, Friday, November 30, 2012.
"We’re excited to welcome the Thousand Oaks Surgical Hospital into the Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center healthcare family," stated Greg Angle, President and CEO of Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center. "Adding the hospitality inspired patient care and award winning clinical attributes of TOSH to the highly specialized acute care medical setting at Los Robles Hospital brings together complementary healthcare services that increase our ability to care for the unique needs of patients."
The sale of TOSH by a group of area investor-physicians and Cirrus Health allows for a natural progression toward expanded healthcare services inherent in today’s healthcare environment.
According to Angle, providing patients with differing settings for needed healthcare services has shown to be effective and efficient when addressing clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction.
"Combining the strengths of TOSH and Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center allows us to offer our community another healthcare dimension within the context of a full service, acute care hospital. It is a win-win for the community. We’re able to offer the community additional care choices through the services of both hospitals,"” Angle commented.
Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center is a licensed 344-bed acute care facility dedicated to serving the residents of Ventura County, the Greater Conejo Valley and its surrounding communities. The hospital is fully accredited by The Joint Commission and is the only hospital in Eastern Ventura County designated as a Level II Trauma Center and the only hospital certified by both Los Angeles and Ventura Counties as a STEMI-designated heart attack center for rapid heart attack response.
With over 500 highly trained physicians on its medical staff representing over 50 medical and dental specialties, Los Robles offers a full array of medical services including a 24-hour emergency & trauma department, ICU/CCU, maternity, neonatal intensive care unit, medical and surgical departments, comprehensive cancer center, heart center, same day surgery, transitional care unit, and rehab center.
Opened in 2005, TOSH is founded on a model that delivers exceedingly high levels of patient satisfaction, award-winning quality, and exceptional outcomes. The 50,000 square foot, multi-specialty hospital hosts six operating suites, 1 cystoscopy suite, eight preoperative rooms, 13 post-operative rooms, three private recovery rooms and 21 private acute care hospital beds.
