St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Oxnard is starting a new intensive care program involving around-the-clock care by doctors.

As part of a change that begins Friday, a doctor called an ICU intensivist will be on the intensive care unit at all times. A rotation of six intensivists will provide assessments on patients and coordinate care provided by doctors, nurses and others.
