nurse with patient

Lompoc Valley Medical Center is committed to providing safe, high quality,compassionate and patient-centered healthcare services to our community.

There are two important aspects of that care: the clinical quality (as measured by outcomes) and the patients’ perspective (as measured by various surveys). We take both of these very seriously. We want to make sure that you get the best care possible.

Greetings Lompoc Residents,

I took the reins at LVMC on February 28, after the well-earned retirement of Jim Raggio. I am appreciative of the very warm welcome I received from everyone I have interacted with, and I look forward to being actively involved in the community.


Food Trucks

At the Corner of East Walnut Ave and North 4th St.

Our Comprehensive Care Center invites you to bring your appetite to the May Moveable Meals Fest! Every Thursday in May, a local food truck vendor will be near the corner of East Walnut Avenue and North 4th Street, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.

Purchase the meal of your choice and relax on our grassy lawn for your lunch and some friendly conversation, or take it to go. Bring your wallet, your appetite, a blanket or chair and enjoy!

If you’re like many people, there are probably a few unused or expired prescription medications in your bathroom or cabinets.


LVMC ER

This morning at 6:45 am, an unknown individual approached a local physician at Lompoc Valley Medical Center as he was readying to enter the acute hospital at the rear entrance of the building.

The individual assaulted the physician and attempted to rob him. Officers with the Lompoc Police Department responded to the incident, and the suspect is now in custody. Police officers remain at the hospital completing their investigation.

The physician is being treated and evaluated.
