Ventura County Star

After 38 years in operation, the obstetrics unit at St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital in Camarillo will close on or around Nov. 1.

“The staff here is devastated,” said Pleasant Valley Hospital obstetrics nurse Ruth Graf, who has worked in the unit since 1975. “This has not been a job for the staff. This has been a life’s work. A calling. This is our lives.”
