The Need for Expansion

The number of patients visiting our Emergency Department has increased to more than double its capacity. Construction is underway on a $10.2 million project to renovate and expand the department to meet the needs of patients and their families in the San Fernando Valley.

The Project

The Emergency Department will remain fully operational during the 3-year construction project. When completed, it will include:

  • Expanded and modernized patient and family waiting areas.
  • New areas to process and treat patients with urgent but not life-threatening conditions.
  • A “child-friendly” treatment area.
  • A new patient room for assessing patients with infectious disease symptoms.
  • A new room for treating patients with behavioral health symptoms.
  • A new, improved entrance to the Emergency Department to facilitate easy access.

Our Commitment

The hospital’s Board of Directors has committed all of the necessary funds to complete the project. In addition, the Valley Presbyterian Hospital Foundation is raising $2.5 million, or approximately 25% of the total budget, through the generosity of the region’s philanthropic community.
