Providence Tarzana Medical Center has served a rapidly growing San Fernando Valley community since 1973. The 249-bed hospital is known in the area as a leading source for quality care, delivering babies, providing Emergency life-saving care and performing the surgeries and other procedures to improve our patients’ health. In 2008, Providence Health & Services purchased Tarzana hospital and converted it to a non-profit organization, adding outreach programs to care for the under-served in our community. Providence Tarzana has received numerous awards from leading national healthcare quality rating organizations. The healthcare services available to the community include Cardiology, Vascular, Orthopedics, Oncology, Women’s, Pediatrics, Neonatal, Diabetes, Wound and Emergency Care.
The Emergency Department has been designated by the Los Angeles County Department of Health as a STEMI and stroke receiving center. This means emergency responders bypass hospitals without this designation and come to Providence Tarzana with patients suffering stroke or the most severe types of heart attack. With teams of highly skilled physicians, nurses and support staff on site, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the department is notified of incoming ambulances is at the door to receive patients and give them the immediate care required to save their lives. Heart attack patients may also be recipients of therapeutic hypothermia, an innovative technique where cardiac arrest patients are cooled to 92 degrees to help prevent brain damage caused by a loss of blood supply. The Emergency Department is also Emergency Approved for Pediatrics and has been the trusted source for pediatric emergencies for decades.
The tiniest patients in our community are in compassionate caring hands, with the area’s largest Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) designed to provide highly specialized care for critically ill babies, regardless of birth weight, gestational age or place of birth. We also are CCS Certified to perform neonatal surgeries. A high-risk infant follow-up clinic ensures ongoing support to help babies reach developmental milestones. Older children have access to our pediatric department and one of only three Pediatric Intensive Care Units in the Valley.
At Providence Tarzana we pride ourselves on bringing you quality, compassionate care.
