Simi Valley Hospital has been ranked as the safest hospital in Ventura County by a ratings survey published in the March 2014 issue of Consumer Reports, the largest independent product testing organization in the world.

SVH had the highest safety score among six Ventura County hospitals listed in the online version of Consumer Reports. The magazine compiled its safety scores based on five criteria: avoiding infections, avoiding readmissions, communicating about medications and discharges, appropriate use of chest and abdominal scanning, and avoiding medical and surgical mortality.
