Valley Presbyterian Hospital opened its doors to the community in 1958
as a small, neighborhood provider of personalized medical care. Today,
we are one of the largest and most prestigious full-service acute care
facilities in the San Fernando Valley. Our 350-bed hospital serves thousands
of families each year, with access to a wide range of medical expertise
and leading-edge technology across all elements of care. Among the region’s
brightest and best, our nurses, therapists, technicians and more than
500 physicians represent virtually every specialty and most sub-specialties
in the medical field, including cardiac care, orthopedics, maternal and
child health, and oncology.
As a certified STEMI receiving center, Valley Presbyterian Hospital is
one of the facilities best equipped to care for heart attack patients
within the critical 90 minutes following the onset of chest pain. We provide
rapid response to such heart attacks, as well as cardiac intervention
and full surgery coverage any time, day or night.
Valley Presbyterian Hospital is a Certified Stroke Center providing immediate
access to specialized neurologist via RP-Lite telemedicine technology.
This system includes an on-camera interface that allows our physicians
to perform real-time consultations with a neurologist located hours away.
VPH is also an Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP). We
have specialized pediatric teams, including pediatric surgeons and anesthesiologists,
who are ready at a moment's notice to assemble, triage, and fast-track
children to the care they urgently need.
While our range of acute-care services and expertise has continued to expand,
we remain a community-based hospital at heart. As one of the Valley’s
only independent, non-profit, and locally governed institutions, we provide
an exceptional level of care that responds to the needs of our community.
As a result, we are honored to have been voted "Best Hospital"
by the readers of LA Daily News for 11 years in a row, and to have received
the 2016 Women's Choice Award as one of America's Best Hospitals
for Patient Safety.
