    Introducing a New Wave in Ventura County Healthcare

    News Release

    Community Memorial Healthcare Debuts New Master Brand

    Community Memorial Healthcare, formerly Community Memorial Health System, is proud to debut a new master brand that better reflects the mission and values of the organization, as well as the breadth of services it provides across west Ventura County. The modernized brand includes a new logo, vibrant colors, and an updated naming architecture.

    The brand, which officially launched January 22, 2023, provides a fresh look for Community Memorial, the locally-owned, not-for-profit health system of choice in Ventura County. The organization remains committed to its independent status and will continue to provide the exceptional care the community has come to know and trust.

    “The goal of this project was to unify Community Memorial’s hospitals, health centers, programs and services under a single, highly recognizable umbrella with consistent presence across the county,” said Jamie Maites, Community Memorial Healthcare Vice President, Marketing & Development. “We wanted the look and feel of the brand to reflect our community and the high quality care we deliver.”

    The new umbrella name, Community Memorial Healthcare, replaces Community Memorial Health System as the enterprise name. Other key name changes include:

    ·       Community Memorial Hospital – Ventura, previously Community Memorial Hospital

    ·       Community Memorial Hospital – Ojai, previously Ojai Valley Community Hospital

    ·       Community Memorial Health Centers, previously Centers for Family Health and Midtown Medical Group

    ·       Community Memorial Foundation, previously Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation

    Community Memorial Healthcare’s new logo, a layered wave, is a nod to Ventura County’s coastal location. The layers symbolize the various parts of the organization — from physicians and caregivers on the front lines to those behind the scenes — all working together to deliver exceptional care. The logo colors were carefully chosen to represent caring (blue), wisdom and compassion (purple), and wellness and vitality (bright green). The wave will replace a number of disparate logos currently being used across Community Memorial’s locations and programs.

    “A tremendous amount of research was done in the planning of this change,” said Mick Zdeblick, President & CEO, Community Memorial Healthcare. “We asked a lot of questions and received input from stakeholders, team members, and our community. We learned that residents are looking for a partner and advocate in their healthcare who will understand their needs and evolve to keep meeting them over time. This new brand represents our commitment to being that partner for our community.”

    Community Memorial’s new website, provides a single virtual front door to all that Community Memorial Healthcare has to offer. Features of the new site include expanded information on services, physicians, and locations, as well as enhanced access to the patient portal, find a doctor tool, and free health risk assessments.

    Community Memorial’s new brand launches in conjunction with a multimedia advertising campaign designed to showcase the new brand and share more about the organization’s philosophy.


    Community Memorial Healthcare is a nonprofit, independent health system serving the needs of Ventura County, California. It is comprised of Community Memorial Hospital – Ventura, Community Memorial Hospital – Ojai, and a network of primary and specialty care health centers across its service area. The organization is supported by the Community Memorial Foundation and the Ojai Valley

    Patient information systems such as MYCHART need to be carefully designed. As an example, Cottage uses MYCHART to communicate but the system is difficult for communicating with the elderly and patients that are in cognitive decline. Contacting the hospital for help with these systems can also be challenging. Although these communication systems are meant to facilitate information exchange, they do fail because seniors and the challenged patients just give up.

    Yes, CMH has one tax ID number. So if you go to a regular type of their offices where you pay your normal copay amount you are then hit with an additional cost as they place the claim into your deductible when the visit was just a copay issue. I tried six calls to the Ventura Hospice administrator and customer service. They literally do not call back. The supervisor for billing was like a brick. They charged $112.53 instead of $40.00. At this point they seem to be getting away with this deceptive practice. The Doctor was wonderful but they do not honor the insurance terms that brought me to them.
