VAN NUYS, Calif. – For the twelfth year in a row, Valley Presbyterian Hospital
(VPH) has been awarded the distinction of Best Hospital in the San Fernando
Los Angeles Daily News readers.
“We are honored that the Daily News readers voted us the ‘Best
Hospital’ in the Valley twelve years in a row. This award is a recognition
that our ongoing efforts to provide high-quality care and service to our
community is being recognized by the thousands of individuals and families
we serve every year.” -- Gustavo Valdespino, President and CEO of
Valley Presbyterian Hospital.
VPH opened its doors in 1958 as a small, neighborhood provider of personalized
medical care. Situated on land donated by William P. Whitsett, “the
Father of Van Nuys,” VPH is now one of the largest full-service,
acute-care hospitals in the Valley. The 350-bed facility serves thousands
of patients every year, providing leading-edge technology and medical
expertise across a wide variety of specialties.
VPH’s dedicated staff and more than 500 physicians represent virtually
every specialty and subspecialty in medicine, including cardiac care,
orthopedics, oncology and maternal and child health care. And, in a further
demonstration of our commitment to the Valley, VPH is in the process of
upgrading the Emergency Department to ensure that we continue to serve
the growing needs of our community both now and in the future.
While the hospital continues to expand its range of services and expertise,
VPH remains a community-based hospital dedicated to high-quality care
and service. As the Valley’s only independent, nonprofit hospital,
VPH’s mission is to improve the quality of health in the community.
