First in the Valley to offer groundbreaking advancements!
Northridge Hospital Medical Center’s new minimally-invasive and noninvasive treatments trump those of years’ past. Our ability to rapidly evolve with the medical field has resulted in faster, more precise diagnoses, shorter hospital stays and quicker recoveries --- whether patients are treated for cancer, a brain tumor or heart disease.
These are exciting times at Northridge Hospital Medical Center! We are proud to be the first in the San Fernando Valley to offer several groundbreaking medical advancements, including the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, the 64-Slice CT Scanner and Gamma Knife bladeless surgery. Northridge Hospital's Stroke Center is where doctors use the latest options and evidence-based treatments to fight stroke—and help patients keep their cool.
You’ll read about all of these revolutionary technologies in this issue of HealthSpeak. Still, technological advancements are nothing if you don’t have a team of specialists who are expertly trained and dedicated to provide the highest quality care with compassionate hands.
These accomplishments wouldn’t have been possible without our committed staff, clinicians and physicians
whose goal is to make every patient their top priority. Our Medical Staff, Quality Council and Community Board collaborate to ensure we are providing safe, effective and compassionate care to our patients.
