Los Robles Health System has enhanced its surgical space with two new state-of-the-art operating suites at its main campus. The new ORs consist of a Hybrid OR and an Open-Heart OR – each measuring a vast 1000 square feet to further enhance the patient experience. The technologically advanced ORs are housed in a new building at the hospital which also includes a new sterile supply room and an expanded space for Central Sterile.

“We are elated to offer our patients some of the most advanced equipment available to treat their surgical needs,” says Traci Beavers, VP of Surgical Services. “The large space is designed with efficiency and workflow in mind to further advance patient outcomes and safety.”

“The OR enhancement further solidifies the hospital’s commitment to providing safe high-quality care to the patients we serve,” says Natalie Mussi, CEO of Los Robles Health System. “These two new rooms are just the beginning of a complete renovation of our operating rooms.” Part of a multi-year expansion, the goal is to upgrade and enlarge the remaining 8 suites at the main hospital campus.

The ORs are part of a $120 million master plan project that includes a new imaging department with state-of-the-art equipment that opened last year and an ER expansion that will more than double the square footage of the existing space to accommodate our growing patient care needs. Just last year, the upgraded the heliport to accommodate Ventura and Los Angeles County’s Firehawk Helicopters.

“All of these improvements will allow us to continue our tradition of offering the safest quality care in the region,” says Chief Medical Officer, Gabriella Sherman, MD. The hospital is an eight-time recipient of The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, the only hospital ratings program based exclusively on hospital prevention of medical errors and harms to patients. The grading system is peer-reviewed, fully transparent and free to the public. “To receive an ‘A’ year after year is a testament to our exceptional healthcare team. It recognizes that our busy acute care hospital is still able to achieve the highest-ranking inpatient care and safety by developing highly focused harm reduction protocols in a truly advanced environment.”
