Vista del Mar’s enrollment suspension is being monitored by the state

Involuntary psychiatric admissions at a Ventura hospital were suspended this week after multiple violations as state officials said they would monitor compliance and members of a public advisory board. The council said it should have been informed months ago about the potential closure.

Loretta Denering, acting chief of Ventura County’s department of behavioral health, imposed the suspension through Dec. 5 at Vista del Mar Private Hospital. But Denering suggested Monday that the 87-bed hospital could reopen those admissions if it makes the necessary changes.

“Vista del Mar has been given a transition plan if they choose to accept it,” she told the Ventura County Behavioral Health Advisory Board at a meeting in Oxnard.
