A Commitment to the Health of Our Community

As a community hospital serving the Foothills for more than 40 years, the USC Verdugo Hills Hospital provides a variety of services, including primary care, diagnostics, emergency medicine and maternal/child health services.

Additionally, USC Verdugo Hills Hospital’s Community Outreach Initiatives are intended to provide health education, access to health care and activities that promote health and well-being among members of our community. These initiatives are not undertaken for marketing purposes, nor are they provided solely to USC Verdugo Hills Hospital patients.

Our community outreach initiatives include:

  • Grant and Sponsorship Support of Local Organizations – A key component of our Community Benefit Initiative is the Community Grants and Sponsorship Program whereby USC Verdugo Hills Hospital can partner with local community and nonprofit organizations to meet the health and well-being needs of our surrounding communities.
