Ventura County Star

After more than six hours of debate, Ventura County supervisors named the Ventura County Medical Center as a west county trauma center late Tuesday night.

Supervisors voted 4 to 1 to choose the county hospital in Ventura over St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Oxnard after months of fierce community-wide debate. The vote opens the door to a possible legal battle.
