Emergency Services

USC Verdugo Hills Hospital is an important provider of round-the-clock emergency services to the Foothills community. Our emergency room, led by physicians who are faculty at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, is continually enhancing its services for adults and children. We offer many advantages that make us an excellent choice for emergency care.

Our emergency physicians are board certified in emergency medicine and well equipped to provide a wide range of emergency services to patients of all ages in the community. Access to surgical services, intensive care, diagnostic imaging and fast track services ensures that every patient and their loved ones receive high-quality and comprehensive care. Working to ensure a compassionate experience, we offer patient ambassadors who comfort and guide patients and families during their emergency room visit.

Efficient Urgent Care

You can’t plan for illness or injury. Specially-trained nurse practioners are ready to handle non-life-threatening, but urgent health care needs as part of our Fast Track Services. No appointment necessary.

As a certified Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP), our physicians and staff know that providing emergency services for pediatric patients requires a specialized, unique approach.

Primary Stroke Center

As a certified primary stroke center, our emergency staff has the knowledge and resources to provide immediate care for stroke patients. The center offers comprehensive neurological care backed by full access to board-certified neurologists at Keck Medicine of USC.
