About Valley Presbyterian Hospital
Valley Presbyterian Hospital is a 350-bed community hospital and one of the largest and most prestigious full-service acute care facilities in the San Fernando Valley. Valley Presbyterian is a certified STEMI receiving center and certified Primary Stroke Center.
In 2017, we became a designated Pediatric Medical Center, recognized by the County of Los Angeles, which allows our team of pediatric specialist to treat and handle a higher level of care needed for our pediatric patients in our pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).
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.
The CNO is preparing to start the nursing staff and leadership on the Magnet journey. With HCAHPS scores hitting 80.8% 9-10 ratings and over $180 million in the bank, it is truly an exciting time to be part of the Valley Presbyterian leadership team.
