AV Hospital Leadership Launches Bold Expansion and Modernization Plan
Board’s strategic vision includes expanded emergency room and new hospital

LANCASTER, CA - The Antelope Valley Healthcare District Board of Directors voted unanimously to invest $8.7 million to expand Antelope Valley Hospital’s emergency room and $9 million toward laying the groundwork to build a new, state-of-the-art hospital.

The board approved the addition of a 6,300-square-foot modular building with 44 beds, adding to the 67 beds currently in the emergency room. The new building will be attached to the existing emergency department. A modular, pre-fabricated structure does not require a new foundation and allows the hospital to erect the new building in less than a year’s time. Last year, the emergency room saw about 130,000 patients in a space that was built for a fraction of that number. In recent years, the number of emergency room visits has increased year-to-year. AV Hospital is home to the third-busiest emergency room in all of California.

“One of my first objectives when I returned to Antelope Valley Hospital this year was to address the chronic overcrowding of our emergency room and initiate the process of building a brand-new medical center that will serve our community’s needs for years to come,” said CEO Ed Mirzabegian. “I commend the board for taking the necessary steps to ensure excellent patient care today and generations to come.”

Learn to Save a Life During Sidewalk CPR Day June 6
Hands-only CPR training can double or triple chances of survival

LANCASTER, CA - Antelope Valley residents can learn to save a life for free during Sidewalk CPR Day on Thursday, June 6. Antelope Valley Hospital (AVH) in partnership with American Medical Response (AMR) will provide “hands-only” CPR training from 9 a.m. to noon at the Community Resource Center, 44151 15th Street West, and from 4 to 9 p.m. at the farmer’s market on Lancaster Boulevard between Fern and Ehrlich avenues in downtown Lancaster. AVH is one of nearly 100 sites throughout Los Angeles County to participate in Sidewalk CPR Day. Hands-only CPR training takes just 10 minutes.

“Our team is passionate about caring for our community,” said hospital CEO Ed Mirzabegian. “We jumped at the chance to take this year’s Sidewalk CPR festivities to downtown Lancaster and engage our fellow neighbors, friends and residents by giving them lifesaving knowledge.”

Also known as compression-only CPR, hands-only CPR is different from conventional mouth-to-mouth CPR. It is designed to give people basic skills, which if provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival until emergency responders arrive. Frequent chest compressions move oxygenated blood through the body, keeping the brain and other vital organs alive until the heart can be restarted. During Sidewalk CPR Day, participants will receive information about the signs of sudden cardiac arrest and instruction on how to perform effective chest compressions.
