Community Benefits

Glendale Adventist Medical Center is proud to provide the community with many programs and services that improve quality of life, address health problems of the disadvantaged and other vulnerable populations and contain community health care costs.

Over the years, GAMC has met and continues to meet these goals through the following:

  • Treating thousands of inpatients each year (including acute, psychiatric and rehab admits), as well as thousands of patients in the emergency room with outpatient procedures and home care visits.

  • Donating funds to other civic and charitable organizations in Glendale and surrounding communities.

  • Providing our community with access to health screenings, support groups and health education classes.

Our community outreach services and programs help address the needs of people in our community who may otherwise not receive help. Listed below are a few of the outreach services and programs we offer and support.


Healthline is a monthly cable TV show featuring GAMC physicians, community leaders and representatives from other organizations to address both general health topics as well as specific community health issues.
