WE ARE THRILLED TO WELCOME THE HOSPITAL OF THE MONTH
POMONA VALLEY HOSPITAL MEDICAL CENTER
Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) is a fully accredited, 412-bed acute care hospital that serves eastern Los Angeles and western San Bernardino counties. As a nationally recognized not-for-profit hospital, PVHMC is proud to house four Centers of Excellence: The Robert and Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center, Stead Heart and Vascular Center, Women's & Children's Center, and Trauma Center. Additionally, we provide comprehensive services such as a full-service Emergency Department, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and Perinatal Center.
Our Women's and Children's Center at PVHMC was established 31 years ago with the mission to address the essential healthcare needs of women and children in the Pomona Valley. Our program thoughtfully designed to offer cutting-edge treatment and diagnostics within a warm, family-centered care environment. Annually, we proudly have about 5000 deliveries, ensuring the best possible care for both mothers and their newborns.
In the unfortunate event of complications during childbirth, PVHMC is equipped with a state-of-the-art 53-bed level 3 NICU facility. This facility serves as a vital resource for the treatment of sick or premature infants from the surrounding areas, including Pomona, Chino Hills, Corona, Claremont, Eastvale, Diamond Bar, as well as throughout San Bernardino and Los Angeles County.
The NICU at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center extends its heartfelt gratitude to Angel Gown for their invaluable contribution of custom-made gowns provided for our tiniest patients and their families. These gowns hold immense significance, serving as a source of comfort and solace during difficult moments.
These specially crafted gowns are used by our smallest patients when they have passed, allowing their families to engage in meaningful rituals. Families have the opportunity to bathe, clothe, hold, and capture precious photographs with their baby if they desire. The added comfort of taking these gowns home provides comfort during an emotionally challenging time.
Johanna Boone, our lead Palliative Care Nurse that oversees our Neonatal Intensive Care Bereavement program, shared her thoughts and the impact of having these beautiful gowns available for our families.
“It is profoundly moving to witness families experiencing tears of joy as they select a special gown for their loved one. These gowns become cherished keepsakes, preserving memories that will last a lifetime. With these beautiful gowns, we strive to transform a difficult time into a more meaningful and beautiful memory. Angel Gown's generosity and support make this possible”.
