Medical/Surgical Wing

Welcome to Mountain View, the Medical/Surgical Wing of Ridgecrest Regional Hospital.  Focusing on improving and ensuring the health of our neighbors has been a lasting commitment and goal of Ridgecrest Regional Hospital. 

With views of the mountains from every room, the name is quite apt.  Mountain View offers 28 beds to provide care to patients who have a variety of illnesses and surgical procedures.  Our staff consists of Registered Nurses, Licensed Vocational Nurses, Certified Nurses Aides and Unit Secretaries.  Care is provided in a team approach, using all available resources such as Case Management, cardiology, Radiology, Laboratory, Chaplains, Utilization Management, Physicial Therapy, Respiratory Therapy, Dietary and Social Services.

Mountain View:

  • Has 18 private and 5 semi-private rooms.
  • Uses Cardiac monitoring via telemetry.
  • Requires All RN’s to be certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support.
  • Provides a Patient Services Representative to provide financial and insurance counseling.

Family participation in plan of care and treatment of patients is encouraged. Patient care conferences are conducted with the patient, the patient’s family and members of the healthcare team, as requested.

Visiting hours on Mountain View are 10:00 am – 8:00 pm.  We ask that visitors be 12 years, although exceptions can be made depending on the circumstances.  Please check with your nurse before bringing young children to the hospital.

We allow two visitors at the bedside at a time and ample space in the waiting area outside of Mountain View where visitors can be comfortably seated while waiting to switch with visitors at the bedside. 

Although no one likes to be in the hospital, we hope we can make your stay as pleasant as possible.  Please let us know if there is anything special that we can do to make your stay better.
