Adventist Health Glendale One of 2020’s Best Hospitals


Adventist Health Glendale has once again been independently verified by U.S. News & World Report as one of 2020’s “Best Hospitals” in their annual ranking. The hospital, celebrating its 115th anniversary, is 12th among the 132 hospitals in the Los Angeles area and 20th in California from among 424 hospitals. These rankings place us, again, in the Top 5% of hospitals statewide and the Top 10% of Los Angeles-area hospitals and further validate our standing as a destination medical center for advanced care; nearly a quarter of all our patients come from outside our primary and secondary markets.

These rankings are based on in-depth analyses of clinical outcomes, staffing, technological capabilities, patient safety and patient satisfaction from nearly 6,300 hospitals nationwide.

In addition to the overall ratings, we ranked high performing in the following Adult Specialties:

  • Diabetes & Endocrinology
  • Geriatrics
  • Neurology & Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedics
  • Pulmonology & lung surgery
  • Urology

Finally, we ranked high performing in the following Common Adult Procedures and Conditions:

  • Colon cancer surgery
  • COPD
  • Heart Failure

These exceptional achievements are due to the care and dedication delivered by our physicians and associates day in and day out.

Recognition such as this, our 5-star rating from CMS and our 11th consecutive A grade from The Leapfrog Group, have all come as a result of our ongoing focus on superb patient experiences, the continued expansion of advanced technologies like our structural heart program, and our unwavering commitment to providing safe, quality outcomes for our patients.

While these results don’t take into account the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, they do recognize our foundation as a center for top-decile care. This enables us to meet unexpected demands, including the pandemic, with innovation, agility, and a singular focus on living our mission to inspire health, wholeness, and hope for our patients and our communities.
