Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association has received the award for “Nonprofit of the Year” from the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce. The award selection committee consists of representatives from event sponsors, including Umpqua Bank, CSU: Channel Islands, DCH Auto Group, Kaiser Permanente, Procter & Gamble, SoCal Edison, Spherion and Dignity Health.
Since 1947, Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association has been providing home health, palliative care, hospice, non-medical home care, and grief and bereavement services to Ventura County and the Oxnard community. They provide equitable and inclusive access to home health and hospice services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. In 2018, they provided home health and hospice services to 920 Oxnard residents, 170 of whom received care free-of-charge through our Subsidized Care program.
They have a four star rating on Medicare’s Home Health Compare Website, which is above both the state and national average for home health services. Their Medical Director, Dr. Lanyard Dial, joined in 1986 and established Livingston as Ventura County’s first Medicare Certified Hospice. He holds Certificates of Added Qualifications in both Geriatric Medicine and Hospice and Palliative Medicine. The Joint Commission accredits us for adhering to national standards of excellence in home health care.
The 69th annual Community & Business Awards will be held Thursday, April 25 at 6:00 pm at Residence Inn by Marriott/River Ridge. Reservations are required in advance and are $60 per person.
