Fountain Valley Regional Hospital (FVRH) reached a milestone on November 1, 2011 when it celebrated it's 40th anniversary.
The hospital opened in 1971 as Fountain Valley Community Hospital, owned by a group of physicians. Over the years, it expanded in many ways. In the 1980s, the hospital opened a 4-bed NICU and 8-bed PICU. In the 1990s, the Neonatal ICU expanded to 22 beds, the Pediatric ICU expanded to 11 beds, and the hospital added sub-ICU beds and a Bariatric Program.
In 1994, the hospital was purchased by OrNda HealthCorp and then subsequently by Tenet Healthcare in 1996, its current owner. In this decade, the hospital made further investments by adding a Telemetry Unit onto the 2nd floor of the Women & Children’s wing, opening a unit on the 4th floor of the East Tower, adding a Pediatric Playroom and Teen Room, renovating and updating to digital equipment in the Breast Care and Imaging Centers and updating the Outpatient GI Lab. During this time, the hospital also redesigned its corporate logo to its now immediately identifiable palm logo in orange and blue.
In 2009-2010, the hospital held a grand opening for its new entrance with expanded lobby and waiting areas, an expanded ER lobby, triage and waiting area, added a 5-bed observation area, renovated cardiology and nuclear medicine areas and updated the OB post-partum and Labor/Delivery/Recovery rooms.
Today, Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center is a 400-bed, acute care facility with comprehensive services spanning from award-winning heart and stroke care, neonatal and pediatric intensive care, high-risk obstetrical services, bariatric surgery, and orthopedics, spine and neurosurgery.
As one of the largest hospitals in Orange County and the largest employer in Fountain Valley, we're proud of our heritage as a caring, community hospital that has grown with the communities we serve - meeting their needs for specialized services, skilled physicians and a high level of quality care.
