College, Hospital in Health Partnership

Agreement includes clinic operation and athletic trainer.

Adventist Health Simi Valley and Moorpark Community College have entered an exclusive multiyear partnership that provides funding and health care expertise to strengthen services already available to students.

The partnership will enhance the college’s basic needs center, career development in health pathways, onsite health care services, the athletic program and sports medicine.

Adventist Health will provide scholarships for health care-related careers, expand clinical rotations for Moorpark students, oversee the health clinic and provide a full-time trainer for the school’s sports programs.

“This collaboration will enhance the health of not only students, but their families and friends,” Jennifer Swenson, chief executive of Adventist Health Simi Valley, said in a statement. “Dedicating resources that focus on career opportunities, health and wellbeing, food insecurities, mental health, training and sports medicine will significantly benefit Moorpark College and our broader communities.”

Adventist Health has invested before in community programs with school districts that have supported sports grants, anti-bullying initiatives and DUI awareness events.

“This is another example of how Adventist Health Simi Valley continues to invest into the community,” Cory Ferrier, business development executive at Adventist Health, said in a statement. “In this partnership we get to demonstrate how a community college and health care provider can work together.”
