Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.

Lompoc Health - North H Center

Lompoc Valley Medical Center would like to introduce you to Lompoc Health - North H Center. The building formerly owned by Sansum Clinic, at 1225 North H St., is now open with the same amazing group of healthcare staff and providers patients have been used to for more than a decade.

Kalea Ancheta came into the world at 10:43 am on January 1, becoming Lompoc Valley Medical Center’s First Baby of 2019.

Kalea was born to parents Mayra Ancheta, a Registered Nurse at LVMC’s Comprehensive Care Center, and Darrell Ancheta, a maintenance supervisor with Santa Barbara County Housing Authority.

Starting Jan. 1, 2019, Lompoc Valley Medical Center (LVMC) will comply with a new federal regulation requiring hospitals to make their standard prices publically available on the Internet.

The regulation from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is meant to provide patients more information to inform their healthcare decisions and to understand their potential financial liability for services they obtain at the hospital. The regulation also enables consumers to compare charges for similar services at different hospitals.

As I approached retirement at the end of 2018, I attended my last BETA Healthcare Group and District Hospital Leadership Forum board meetings. 

The community should be very proud that Lompoc Valley Medical Center was a founding member of both organizations.

The new year also brings a new look to the Lompoc Valley Medical Center Board of Directors. In last November’s election, voters chose three new trustees to help guide the organization.
