USC Verdugo Hills Hospital began as Behrens Memorial Hospital, which was established in 1947. Instead of attempting to expand the Behrens facility, a new hospital was built on the hilltop land donated by the Greene family. In 1972, our hospital was created as Verdugo Hills Hospital and was an independent, 158-bed acute care hospital serving patients in the cities of Glendale and La Cañada Flintridge, as well as the surrounding Foothill communities of Southern California for more than 40 years.

In 2013, Verdugo Hills Hospital partnered with the University of Southern California (USC), creating USC Verdugo Hills Hospital. USC Verdugo Hills became part of Keck Medicine of USC, which includes the Keck Medical Center of USC and Keck School of Medicine of USC. All are part of USC, one of the world’s leading private research universities.

Glendale Memorial Hospital and Medical Center

For more than 85 years, Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center has been serving the medical needs of the greater Glendale/Burbank area. Over those years, Glendale Memorial has grown and flourished, adding new technology and services. One overriding principle has always remained consistent – a commitment to the highest standards of care!

For over eighty five years, Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center has grown along with the community and has evolved into one of the region’s premier healthcare providers. On January 13, 1926, Glendale Memorial opened as Physicians and Surgeons Hospital, thanks to six Glendale community members who had a vision to expand healthcare services to the residents of south Glendale. On October 11, 1938, the hospital became incorporated as a non-profit institution. Opening originally with forty-seven beds, the hospital expanded to 110 beds in 1942.

During and after World War II the hospital served a rapidly growing community, including Glendale, the Crescenta-Canada Valley, Burbank, and the eastern end of the San Fernando Valley corridor. In 1957 the hospital expanded to 220 beds, and an intensive care unit was added in 1958.

The Physicians and Surgeons Hospital, which changed its name to Memorial Hospital of Glendale in the 1950s, had grown from its original forty-seven beds to 310 in 1972. The hospital is now an impressive 334-bed facility, expanding over three city blocks. Glendale Memorial Hospital offers primary service lines in heart, cancer, spine and women’s health.

Today, we are part of Adventist Health—a health system that includes 19 hospitals and a number of other health care organizations in California, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii.

Healing and servanthood are honorable attributes for which to strive. Yet they are lofty ideals unless there is a commitment and program for placing them into action and sustaining them on a day-to-day basis. Glendale Adventist Medical Center works diligently to infuse our daily activities with the hospital’s mission to provide compassionate, professional health care services for the whole person – body, mind and spirit.Our mission, and that of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, has been to improve the health of the communities we serve. We also want to spread the word about the link between health and lifestyle decisions.
