Diabetes is a chronic (long-lasting) disease that affects how a body turns food into energy. The three main types of diabetes are: Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes (or developing diabetes while pregnant).

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.
