Adventist Health Simi Valley

Adventist Health Simi Valley

Adventist Health Simi Valley was founded in 1965 to provide Simi Valley, Moorpark and surrounding communities with the finest medical care. Today, the Nancy Reagan Breast Center is embarking on a renovation project to share in that vision.

Former First Lady Nancy Reagan gave her name to Adventist Health Simi Valley’s breast center after she won her battle against breast cancer. Thirty years later, the Adventist Health Simi Valley Foundation is raising $2 million for a beautiful renovation and expansion of the Nancy Reagan Breast Center.

The expansion will allow us to continue fulfilling Nancy Reagan’s mission to ensure women across Ventura County receive expert breast care. The new Center will accommodate more advanced technology, additional treatment rooms, and an expansion of our clinical team, allowing us to double the number of patients treated and save more lives! Designed with elegance and comfort in mind, the Center will elicit a spa-like feel to provide a soothing, calming effect. For added support, Nurse Navigators offer compassion and one-on-one guidance during every step of the patient’s journey.

As a faith-based hospital founded on the principles of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, we believe that our mission to treat the whole person—mind, body and spirit—makes the difference. Whether patients seek medical services ranging from Emergency Care to Women’s and Children’s Services to treatment at the Nancy Reagan Breast Center, the medical staff and employees of Adventist Health Simi Valley are committed to providing the best care possible.


The Chevron El Segundo Refinery has been a South Bay neighbor for over 100 years. In fact, the city of El Segundo is named after the refinery, which was “the second” Standard Oil Refinery in California. Today, the Chevron El Segundo Refinery produces over 260,000 barrels per day of transportation fuels, including gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel. Much has changed since the refinery first began production in 1911. Homes and businesses sprang up around the refinery’s borders over the years. As a result, Chevron has strived to be a good neighbor in many ways, from running our operations smoothly to donating money, time and materials to local non-profit groups. Chevron is proud to be a longtime sponsor of the Distinguished Speakers Series. For more information on the Chevron El Segundo Refinery, visit our web site at
