The UCLA West Valley Medical Center is strategically located to offer residents of San Fernando Valley convenient access to advanced healthcare services.  

As part of the deal, UCLA Health has retained majority of healthcare professionals and support staff from HCA Healthcare at West Hills.  

Included in the acquisition is a 260-bed community hospital on a 14-acre site, nearly 21 miles from UCLA’s main campus in Los Angeles’ Westwood area, with a free-standing ambulatory surgery centre as well as seven operating rooms. 

The hospital also presents opportunities for future expansion of care, UCLA Health noted. 

UCLA Health is now planning a comprehensive, long-term strategy to enhance the UCLA West Valley Medical Center property and fully utilise the additional capacity.  

While these plans are developed, the range of medical services provided at the medical centre will remain consistent, UCLA Health stated. 

UCLA Hospital System CEO and UCLA Health president Johnese Spisso said: “This acquisition represents a strategic investment in our community and our mission. 

“It will both increase convenience for patients living and working in the San Fernando Valley and provide critically needed inpatient hospital capacity in the UCLA Health system to serve more patients who require highly specialised care and treatments.”
