Prestigious Awards for Excellence
The Los Angeles Business Journal has named Northridge Hospital Medical Center one of the 2009 Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. A double-dose of good news came when Northridge Hospital was also chosen by the readers of the Los Angeles Daily News as Favorite Hospital.
The Business Journal finalists included a cross section of business, industry and non-profit organizations. In the “large organization” category, we ranked #3 in all of Los Angeles. This was a particularly significant achievement for us to be side-by-side with an elite class of organizations that were finalists coupled with the fact that we were the only healthcare provider in the top nine to receive this substantial award.
Northridge Hospital has earned numerous esteemed accreditations, licenses and certifications, which attest to our ability to provide excellent healthcare. They aren't just awards, they demonstrate our commitment to superior care. We are now certified as a Primary Stroke Center. The certification from The Joint Commission recognizes that the services we provide have the critical elements to achieve long-term success in improving stroke patient outcomes.

Impairment can prevent this complex web of nerves from carrying important messages about pain, heat and cold to the brain. Enter the Neuroscience Institute: a combination of four specialty programs at Northridge Hospital which treat a wide variety of neurological and neurosurgical problems.
