Gastrointestinal Lab

Latest Technology for Gastrointestinal Care

Community Memorial’s state-of-the-art Gastrointestinal Lab (GI lab) is located at Community Memorial Hospital – Ventura. Our lab offers dedicated gastrointestinal procedure rooms equipped with the latest technology, private prep and recovery rooms, and dedicated imaging equipment. We are dedicated to continuously upgrading our technology to provide our patients with the best diagnostics and treatment possible, and our experienced staff and physicians will guide you through every step of your prep and procedure.

Preparing for Your Procedure

Each procedure performed in our Gastrointestinal Lab has unique preparation instructions which will be provided to you when your procedure is scheduled. We encourage you to call your doctor with any specific questions regarding how to prepare, and to follow his or her instructions as closely as possible.


Procedures performed in our GI Lab involve various levels of sedation. It’s extremely important that you arrange for transportation to and from your procedure, as you will not be permitted to drive following discharge. You must arrange for a responsible adult to take you home, and you cannot use a taxi or rideshare. Overnight/long-term parking is available in our hospital parking structure, but is not recommended for GI procedure patients.
