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%.
