From the day we opened our doors in August 1965, Simi Valley
Hospital's fundamental mission has been to provide exceptional

health care resource.

an organization and to communicating with and quickly responding
to the needs of our stakeholders, including our patients,
physicians, workforce and community. Our first-ever social
responsibility report is part of that commitment. In the report,
we detail our key relationships and how we are working with
others within the hospital and in our community to make Simi
