The Ventura County Health Care Agency (HCA) has received the largest single private donation in its history — $750,000 from the estate of Ojai environmentalist and community activist Pat Weinberger.
A longtime resident of Ojai, Weinberger passed away in December 2016 at the age of 93.
Her living trust bequeathed a portion of her estate to Ventura County Medical Center (VCMC) in memory of her late husband, Laurence Weinberger, who was a physician in Ojai.
At its Jan. 9 meeting, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors approved the donation and authorized HCA Director Johnson Gill to accept the funds from Weinberger's estate.
