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 Cardiac 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 Primary 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.

In 2017, we became a designated Pediatric Medical Center (PMC), recognized by the County of Los Angeles, which allows our team of pediatric specialists to treat and handle a higher level of care needed for our pediatric patients in our pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). Only three hospitals are a designated PMC in the San Fernando Valley, and we are proud that VPH is one of them.

Additionally, our Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP) designation means 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.

Valley Presbyterian Hospital is also recognized by Blue Cross Blue Shield as a Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement Surgery. We are recognized for our expertise in delivering a higher quality of hip and knee surgery, with a higher level of efficiency in delivering care, resulting in better patient outcomes compared to other institutions.

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 12 years in a row, and to have received the 2016 Women's Choice Award as one of America's Best Hospitals for Patient Safety.
