Since our founding in 1905 as the Glendale Sanitarium, countless patients have entrusted our physicians, nurses and associates with their healthcare needs. Today, we are the largest medical center serving the San Fernando Valley. As we continue to grow and evolve to better meet the needs of the communities we serve, we know that exceptional healthcare is more than medicine. It’s about how we choose to care for our patients and each other – taking time to listen, to understand, to answer questions, to hold a hand, even to pray. This is who we are, who we have always been – it is what we do best.
