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.

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.
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 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.
