September 3, 2017: U.S. News & World Report has ranked Adventist Health Glendale (formerly Glendale Adventist Medical Center) as one of the best hospitals in the region.
On the publication’s list of “Best Hospitals,” Adventist Health Glendale was No. 16 in the Los Angeles Metro area and No. 28 in California.
The Los Angeles Times reported that in a statement hospital CEO Kevin Roberts explained the ranking as a “true testament of our hospital’s mission of living God’s love by inspiring health, wholeness and hope.”
Data was collected from over 4,500 medical centers across the country and 25 different specialties, procedures and conditions were considered for the report.
Adventist Health Glendale’s geriatrics, orthopedics and neurology services were praised. The hospital was also rated highly for treatment of heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Despina Kayichian, the hospital’s vice president of medical affairs, said that one area the hospital is focusing on for improvement is lowering the wait times for the Emergency Department.
Glendale is part of Adventist Health, an Adventist-run healthcare system with 20 hospitals as well as other facilities spread across California, Oregon, Hawaii and Washington.
