Vista del Mar Hospital

Welcome to Vista del Mar Hospital in beautiful Ventura!

On behalf of our doctors, nurses, clinical staff and administration, we welcome you to Vista del Mar Hospital. Admitting yourself or a loved one to a behavioral healthcare hospital is difficult. We understand and want you to know that we care – and it is our goal to provide a safe and caring environment to meet your mental health needs.

At Vista del Mar Hospital, we offer both inpatient and outpatient programs for adolescents and adults. The hospital specializes in both stabilization and intensive treatment for mental health and/or substance use concerns. In addition, we provide comprehensive outpatient services, including the Adult Partial Hospitalization Program and Adolescent/Adult Intensive Outpatient Program. The hospital also serves the military community with evidence-based therapies for active-duty military, Veterans and their families.

Most who come to our hospital are experiencing some of the worst times in their lives, and our goal is to treat every patient as a family member. I have a personal commitment to ensure that we are a hospital that values compassion, respect and dignity to all individuals and their families.

I am dedicated to our mission and vision, and I hope that you find your care at Vista del Mar Hospital to be meaningful.

Sincerely, Daniel C. Powell, MA., MFT, BCBA
