Since Valley Presbyterian Hospital opened its doors in 1958, our core mission
as an independent, non-profit community hospital is to provide excellent
care that responds to the needs of our community. We do that with best-in-class
physicians, staff and equipment within our four walls but also believe
in our responsibility to support other community programs and organizations
across the San Fernando Valley. For many years, to fulfill our mission,
we have worked with these organizations to identify specific needs and
vulnerabilities in our service area, and partner with them on specially
designed programs that have greatly benefited individuals in the community.
The type of community healthcare programs we partner with include:
Access to care - free healthcare screenings, educational materials, community events,
and outreach programs
Diabetes and Obesity - hands-on education on prevention and weight management; physical fitness
and healthy lifestyle programs
Mental Health services - in-patient consultations and psychiatric care hospitalization; at-risk
youth and teen pregnancy counseling

them, and the positive results achieved.
