Vista del Mar Hospital in Ventura

Note from the CEO

Welcome to Vista del Mar Hospital in Ventura, California. As the CEO of our licensed and accredited acute psychiatric hospital, I am dedicated to ensuring that our mental health and chemical dependency services are administered in support of our mission: to deliver superior healthcare to the patients and communities we serve in Southern California. With eighty-seven individual patient beds and sixteen acres of beautiful land with gorgeous ocean views, Vista del Mar Hospital is committed to provide care for you and your loved ones during your greatest times of need. Having a background in Social Work and Public Policy, it is my commitment that we treat each and every patient as a member of our own family, with respect and compassion.

Why we are Committed:
Overall, our focus is safety and wellness of the individual, family, and community. We are honored to have the opportunity to serve our city, county, and surrounding counties with the focus of creating a safe environment for people to find wellness. Mental illness/addiction recovery is a journey. We are committed to walking alongside individuals and loved ones on this journey to discover wellness of mind and body. At Vista, we strive to be beacon of hope and a place where people are able to find peace and healing through the treatment provided in our hospital.

What we Offer:
We offer both inpatient and outpatient comprehensive care programs for adults and youth (ages 12+)—as well as support for family members, loved ones, and anyone else affected by mental illness and/or addiction. Community outreach is also an important aspect of our care, as we provide resources and education through events and projects in our community. There is great value in community awareness of mental illness/addiction recovery—in order to provide the support and encouragement to those in need, where and when they need it the most.

How to Get Help:
If you are in the Southern California area, please feel free to contact us today with questions or to speak with one of our licensed Patient Service Clinicians, please call 877-518-1110. Whether you are looking for mental health and/or chemical dependency services for yourself or a loved one, we are available 24/7 to speak with you and provide you with a free, initial assessment at our facility.

Thank you and be well,

Jenifer Nyhuis, CEO
