Pleasant Valley Lions Club Donate $15,000 to the St. John’s Healthcare Foundation

At their meeting on June 12, the Pleasant Valley Lions Club presented a check for $15,000 to the St. John’s Healthcare Foundation.  The donation will provide important new medical equipment in conjunction with the renovations underway at St. John’s Pleasant Valley Hospital in Camarillo.

The St. John’s Foundation works to raise money for needed medical services and equipment, both in Camarillo, and for St. John’s Medical Center in Oxnard.  The donation from the Lions Club will go to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to provide better vision health for the smallest patients.  Specifically, the funds will be used to replace a specialized lens in the RetCam system.  This advanced system enables the capture of brilliant, full color images for immediate assessment of the retina and anterior chamber.

The Pleasant Valley Lions meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, at 7:00 p.m., in the Freedom Center at Camarillo Airport.  The Lions have been providing assistance and monetary contributions in the community since 1945.
