Park district wins award for design

SIMI VALLEY -- The Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District's design of Vista del Arroyo Park received a 2006 Award of Excellence for Outstanding Park Planning from the California Parks and Recreation Society.

Vista del Arroyo Park is a 3.3-acre park along the Arroyo Simi near Sequoia and Royal avenues.

The park has picnic tables, barbecues, a basketball court, playgrounds for small children, a gazebo, meandering walkways, wooden pedestrian bridges, a streambed made out of river rock and granite boulders, native plants and other elements to create a natural link to the adjacent arroyo.

The park's entry is decorated with mosaic tile murals created by Ojai artist Debra Letitia, featuring an egret and red-tailed hawk along with animals and plants typically seen along the arroyo.

Hospital upgrades computer services

SIMI VALLEY -- New computer services are available at Simi Valley Hospital and wireless Internet access is expected through all of the hospital's main buildings by this fall.

Patient confidentiality is protected under the new Project IntelliCare system, which includes network access for 70 mobile carts through most hospital areas.

The system, which is already in operation and will be expanded late this year or early next year, allows physicians to download patient data to handheld computers that also hold the doctors' calendars and other information.

The hospital's new patient care tower that is expected to open this fall will also include the new computer access for doctors, plus some of the 65 wireless Internet access points in the hospital system for patients and visitors.
