Serving Our Community
Dignity Health Northridge Hospital Medical Center is committed to serving the health needs of our communities with particular attention to the needs of the poor, the disadvantaged and vulnerable, and the comfort of the suffering and dying. Dignity Health has a commitment to quality - quality healthcare services and the promotion of optimal quality of life for all of life.
Northridge Hospital fosters the belief that people make the difference in the art of healing. Dignity Health is technologically advanced without losing the human touch. We strive to create a professional and healing environment that respects human dignity, provides excellent services, promotes justice in serving the poor, stewards our healthcare resources and collaborates among healthcare providers and community leaders. We believe that high quality healthcare is a right, not a privilege, and we strive to provide healthcare access for all who seek care in our facility.
History and Heritage
Celebrating nearly 60 years of excellence, Northridge Hospital began when 37 physicians put up their own money to build the first hospital in the San Fernando Valley. This humble beginning -- a 49-bed hospital serving 200,000 -- evolved into a 411-bed hospital serving two million residents.
Northridge is the largest hospital in the Valley and boasts the most technologically advanced and compassionate services - from the Adult & Pediatric Trauma Centers to the Women's Center, CardioVascular Center, Cancer Center and our Center for Rehabilitation Medicine.
Improving Community Health
Our affiliated physicians, employees and volunteers recognize and support the physical, emotional, social and spiritual well being of those we serve. We aim to provide the highest quality healthcare within our hospital walls, but we also work in partnership with other local organizations to address the priority health needs of our community outside the walls of the hospital. We hold ourselves accountable to our community for the human, financial and ecological resources entrusted to our care.
We are proud to share this the Report to the Community on the strategic efforts we have undertaken over the last year to promote the health of the Northridge Hospital Medical Center community. During 2012 and early 2013, a community health needs assessment (CHNA) was conducted by the Northridge Hospital Medical Center for the 1.2 million residents of the hospital’s service area in northern Los Angeles County and a portion of the city of Simi Valley in Ventura County, as well as parts of Santa Clarita Valley.
At Northridge Hospital Medical Center, and Dignity Health, we recognize that as community leaders and stewards of community health, we can have a lasting impact on the environment by Reducing, Recycling, Replenishing, Reusing, Reprocessing and Donating.
Environmental sustainability programs help hospitals significantly improve environmental health. These efforts also can lower costs, improve organizational performance and enhance the patient and employee experience.
