Paving the Way for Interconnected and Advanced Care in Los Angeles

Adventist Health has been a trusted healthcare partner for the people of Los Angeles, Glendale and their surrounding communities for more than a century. Today, inspired by their shared mission and values, Adventist Health Glendale and Adventist Health White Memorial are part of a sophisticated network of hospitals, medical offices, hospice and home care agencies, and joint-venture retirement centers across the West Coast and Hawaii. These strong ties provide a full range of services, visionary programs and the very latest advanced technology for almost any type of illness or injury.

Adventist Health Glendale, a 515-bed hospital, provides a vast array of services, programs and procedures, including nationally recognized orthopedic, cancer, cardiovascular and stroke care.  These services, delivered with focused patient safety and quality care, have resulted in the national recognition of several prominent healthcare ranking organizations. The medical center has received 13 consecutive “A” grades from The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit hospital watchdog organization. It was also ranked among the top five percent of all California hospitals by U.S. News & World Report for the third year in a row and has earned two consecutive five-star quality ratings from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

Adventist Health White Memorial, located near downtown Los Angeles, serves a diverse community. The medical center is proud to offer a full range of services, including cardiovascular care, orthopedic care, rehabilitation, oncology, specialized and general surgery, and women’s and children’s services. Additionally, White Memorial is home to the Cecilia Gonzalez De La Hoya Cancer Center. Named after the mother of boxing sensation Oscar De La Hoya, the center features state-of-the-art equipment that provides advanced prostate, breast and other cancer treatments. In 2019, the hospital was one of only six organizations across the U.S. to receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation’s highest presidential honor for excellence. It is the first organization—and the only hospital—in Los Angeles to receive this award and reflects the hospital’s multi-year achievements in improved patient outcomes, patient satisfaction, financial performance, physician engagement, process efficiency, and much more.

Between pain and long recovery times, the idea of surgery can feel daunting for many reasons. Fortunately, surgeons at both Adventist Health Glendale and Adventist Health White Memorial are using advanced robotic technology to make operations less invasive, resulting in shorter recovery times and fewer risks.

When someone is having a stroke, time is essential. The faster a patient can get to the hospital, the better their chances of survival and recovery. That’s why both Adventist Health Glendale and Adventist Health White Memorial are certified primary stroke centers, and both have direct admit and transfer centers. These centers have dedicated staff available 24/7 to facilitate transfers of stroke patients, as well as those with other emergent conditions, from other hospitals, physician offices, IPAs, clinics and urgent care facilities.

Both Glendale and White Memorial have expanded their reach into their communities with a broad network of medical offices and urgent care facilities. Their experienced physicians and highly skilled healthcare workers specialize in hundreds of different disciplines for every age and stage of life.

Though Adventist Health Glendale and Adventist Health White Memorial are two very distinct medical centers, it is their shared mission—living God’s love by inspiring health, wholeness and hope—that ties them together. Since their beginnings more than 100 years ago, their shared goal has always been to treat the whole person—physically, mentally and spiritually—and provide patients with all the tools they need to live longer, healthier and happier lives.
