Providing for Today
Lompoc Healthcare District, now known as Lompoc Valley Medical Center (LVMC) includes a 60-bed acute hospital and a 110-bed Convalescent Care Center. Together these facilities supply a vast array of high-quality inpatient, outpatient skilled care, long-term care, health promotion and health maintenance programs for district residents.
LVMC is the sole provider of 24-hour emergency services, the only acute hospital and one of two long-term care facilities serving the Lompoc Valley. Approximately 98% of LVMC patients live in the City of Lompoc and the immediate surrounding communities of Mesa Oaks, Mission Hills, Vandenberg Village, and Vandenberg Air Force Base.
LVMC is fully licensed by the California Department of Health Services and accredited by The Joint Commission. The diagnostic imaging department is also accredited by the American College of Radiology.
The medical staff, including consulting and courtesy staff members, is comprised of 87 highly qualified, licensed physicians.
LVMC is a provider of vitally needed healthcare services and a major employer in the area, thus directly benefiting the local economy. More than 500 people are employed at LVMC and the salaries and benefits of staff exceed $15 million per year.
