Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation

OVCH Guild

The Ojai Valley Community Hospital Guild is a group of dedicated women and men working together to support our local hospital.

The OVCH Guild's mission is to increase community awareness as to the vital benefits and services of the Ojai Valley Community Hospital, to assist the Hospital Foundation in its fundraising and special projects and to offer OVCH Guild members educational and social opportunities.

Currently the OVCH Guild sponsors two dynamic fundraising events each year. These include the Nightingale Ball in November or December and a spring fundraiser. In addition monthly meetings feature speakers on topics relevant to medicine and the hospital.

If you would like information about membership in the OVCH Guild, please contact the Foundation Office at 805/640-2317 or E-MAIL US.

Operation Picasso: Art & Healing

Operation Picasso was originally conceived in 2004 by Guild members Barbara Hirsch and Neva Williams who co-chaired the project. The concept successfully fused Ojai’s talented art community with the hospital’s healing environment resulting in some 200 original works of art being donated by local artists and patrons. To date Operation Picasso has not only enhanced the hospital atmosphere, but also created a more tranquil positive environment for patients and staff alike.
