Foundation Golf Tournament a Success
For the past 26 years, the nonprofit Lompoc Hospital District Foundation has reached out to the community for financial help.

Giving the CCC a Makeover
Members of the Lompoc Hospital Foundation are actively raising money to help give the 110-bed Comprehensive Care Center a major makeover. The foundation, now more than a year into its capital campaign, has raised approximately $500,000 toward the much-anticipated renovation project. Foundation President Alice Milligan is reaching out into the community to urge donations to the $2 million campaign, noting that most of the rooms have not been remodeled since the building opened more than 40 years ago.
Holiday Home Tour Raises $12,500
More than $12,500 was raised this year for the Lompoc Hospital District Foundation from the 2016 Holiday Home Tour and Tea.
The event, which took place Dec. 11, included self-guided tours of four spectacular homes, as well as a delectable array of culinary treats at the Lompoc Valley Medical Center’s Ocean’s Seven Café.
Lompoc Valley Medical Center and the Lompoc Hospital District Foundation’s Community Education Committee invite the public to a Disaster PrepareAthon on Oct. 22.

Ocean Ave. “It is time for Lompoc to get prepared and for LVMC to help our community to help themselves with a strong brace of support from our Lompoc Fire Department, Red Cross, Lompoc Police Department, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department and many local collaborating agencies,” said LVMC Outreach Coordinator Karen Ortiz.
Lompoc Hospital District Foundation Colorthon Raises $20,000
Some 350 people braved the scorching heat Sept. 25 for the 2nd annual Lompoc Hospital District Foundation Colorthon – and helped raise $20,000 for the nonprofit.
The Colorthon at River Park also attracted more than a dozen vendors and food trucks and kicked off with an energetic Zumba workout by Cynthia Bittle.
The Foundation is in the midst of a $2 million capital campaign to raise funds to renovate Lompoc Valley Medical Center’s skilled nursing and post-acute rehabilitation facility, the Comprehensive Care Center.
The Youth Movement
Sitting in a meeting room to plan the next Lompoc Hospital District Foundation fundraiser are a dedicated group of people who have devoted a quarter century to raising money for LVMC and hosting health education lectures for the community. In the past several years, the group has been joined by a young man — Tyler Perry — who wasn’t even alive when the Foundation first came into being almost 26 years ago.
