Vista del Mar Hospital celebrated its membership and ribbon cutting ceremony at the Santa Maria Chamber of Commerce office on October 29th.  Vista del Mar Hospital would like to thank Mayor Alice Patino, Chamber CEO Robert Hatch, Chamber Ambassadors and Staff, and the Santa Maria community members that came to support our membership and commitment to the community of Santa Maria.

Vista del Mar Hospital, located in Ventura, is an acute psychiatric facility situated on 16 acres with ocean views.   The hospital has highly structured and comprehensive inpatient care for the stabilization and safety of adults and adolescents with acute psychiatric illness.   In addition to our Adult and Adolescent Units, Vista del Mar Hospital has a dedicated Dual Diagnosis and Medical Detox Inpatient Unit.  The Adult Dual Diagnosis Program is designed to treat patients who struggle with psychiatric illness compounded by chemical dependency.     Our hospital serves ten counties throughout California, including Santa Barbara County and the city of Santa Maria.   Committed to providing quality patient care, Vista del Mar Hospital believes in a collaborative approach to patient care.   Vista del Mar Hospital has professional relationships with staff at Marion Regional Medical Center, Santa Barbara County CARES, and Casa Pacifica – SAFTY.   This collaboration ensures the highest quality of patient care for the residents of Santa Maria.  Upon discharge, our team of Case Managers work with Santa Maria based psychiatrists, therapists, and community organizations to ensure continuity of care.

Of equal importance to Vista del Mar Hospital is community outreach and mental health education.   Involvement with community health fairs, attending professional association events and sponsoring various trainings within the community are key aspects of the Hospital’s Mission.  Vista del Mar Hospital will begin offering an educational series, in Santa Maria, that will cover topics related to mental health beginning in 2014.  Please visit our website for dates, times, and locations, www.vistadelmarhospital.com.  Upcoming events will be posted soon.

Vista del Mar Hospital would like to thank the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce for hosting the ribbon cutting ceremony, welcoming us to the chamber, on October 29th.   It has been our pleasure to work with the Mental Health professionals and businesses of Santa Maria.  We look forward to many more years of successful collaboration.
