On Wednesday, January 14th, Los Robles trained over

400 high school students how to perform “hands-only”

CPR, also referred to as “bystander CPR.” The train-

ing was part of Los Robles’ ongoing effort to teach

“hands-only” CPR to all of Ventura County. Hospital

staff and emergency medical technicians, along with

cardiac arrest survivors, led the training.

The students learned that if they see someone who has

collapsed, they should first check for responsiveness

to determine whether the person is indeed in cardiac

arrest and call 911.

They also learned how to properly place their hands

on the center of the chest and continue compressions

without stopping until help arrives.

On Friday, February 6th, Los Robles will conduct sim-

ilar training at Thousand Oaks High School with the

goal of teaching over 650 kids.

The administrative staff and teachers at Westlake High

School will also be taught how to save lives through

“hands-only” CPR on Wednesday, February 5th.

Dear Care Team Members,

Happy New Year! I hope you and your families enjoyed a healthy and happy start

of 2015. Now that we’re a few weeks into the New Year, it’s good to look ahead and

think about what this year may bring us. But first, a quick look back at some of our

accomplishments in 2014:

This past year we launched services that expanded our offerings to the communities

we serve. We started the year by establishing a partnership with USC’s Department

of Urology to keep more complex urologic cases at Los Robles. We introduced a

Neuroendovascular program to complement our stroke program and expanded our

cardiology services by becoming the only hospital from LA to Northern California to

offer a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) program, which makes us

the most comprehensive cardiac program in the area.

Not only did we enhance our services, we continued to build upon our beautiful

facility. The hospital underwent a seismic retrofit of the 1968 tower to ensure our

buildings are earthquake safe and performed a cosmetic upgrade so that our origi-

nal tower now looks brand new. Our Acute Rehab Unit was expanded from 10 to 20

beds. The ICU and TOSH patient rooms are also being updated to ensure that we

provide the most comfortable environment for our patients.

We also had many technology upgrades added to our facility. Our Imaging Center in

Moorpark became the only center in the region to offer Tomosynthesis, or 3D Mam-

mography, which will allow us to detect cancer earlier and reduce our recall rates.

In addition, our bi-plane room was updated with the latest technology and radiation

reduction software to give us the best images for our neuroendovasucar patients.

EVS also received a new team member when Flash, a XENEX robot, was added to

our crew to assist in disinfection and to ensure that we are providing the cleanest

and safest environment for our patients.

We were recognized for many outstanding achievements including an “A” in patient

safety by the Leapfrog Group, being named a Top Performing Hospital on Key

Quality Measures and receiving accreditation by the Joint Commission for our Heart

Failure Program. Additionally, we were recognized as a Gold Plus award winner

for our quality stroke outcomes by the American Heart Association and our Patient

Satisfaction scores peaked in the 4th quarter at 73.4%.
