Our Success Story

Your hospital and the staff that it employees truly gave me a second chance at life. I had given up on myself and my health and any hope for happiness or comfort, and that was all turned around and given back to me within a four-day period. The surgery, the recovery, and the entire experience that I had at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital exceeded any expectation I could have ever had in my wildest, most hopeful dreams.
