Quality and Safety
Providence Tarzana Medical Center is committed providing compassionate, reliable and safe care. That’s why we continually implement quality initiatives that ensure our patients receive the absolute best care. Our quality dashboard shows ours progress on five quality measures.
Providence Tarzana Medical Center provides a vast range of clinically excellent, compassionate health care for individuals living and working in the San Fernando Valley. Specializing in cardiac services, orthopedics, women's services, pediatrics (including certified pediatric emergency services) and oncology, Providence Tarzana Medical Center houses the San Fernando Valley Heart Institute; the Women's Pavilion, the Diabetes Care Center and one of the largest neonatal intensive care (NICU) units in the Valley. Our doctors, nurses and staff have been recognized for their commitment to patient care and have earned prestigious local and national recognition for quality care.
Providence Tarzana Medical Center has been recognized to have exceptional quality in a broad range of services which include: Cardiac Care, Critical Care, Gastrointestinal Care, Maternity Care, Orthopedics, Pulmonary Care, Stroke, Vascular Care, and Women's Health Care. Providence Tarzana Medical Center is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the nation's oldest and largest hospital accreditation agency.
Approved as a STEMI Receiving Center (SRC) by the State Department of Health Services and Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services in January 2007, and a Stroke Receiving Center in 2009, Providence Tarzana Medical Center is well known for the extraordinary care provided by our cardiac and vascular teams of physicians, nurses, and staff. Providence Tarzana has been ranked among the top hospitals in L.A. for heart attack survival by the California Hospital Outcomes Project conducted by OSHPD and has been recognized for "Best Surgical Outcomes of any Hospital in the San Fernando Valley" by the California Report on Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgeries. We have been listed in Money Magazine as one of the top-rated hospitals for Peripheral Vascular Bypass Surgery on the west coast and have been recognized for participating in the American Heart Association's "Get with the Guidelines - Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) Program."
Providence Tarzana is also one of a few community hospitals in the region equipped to handle pediatric emergencies, pediatric intensive care and other pediatric subspecialties. In our Pediatric Unit as well as in our Mozilo Family Foundation Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, we partner with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, named a “best hospital” for children by U.S. News & World Report magazine and awarded Magnet status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Together, we can ensure that the care provided for our youngest patients is grounded in leading-edge industry practices and award-winning expertise. In addition, Providence Tarzana has met rigorous pediatric emergency care standards and is approved as an "Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP)". This certification by the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Agency means that any sick or injured child will be taken to an EDAP-certified hospital first whenever 911 is called with a pediatric emergency. Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) ranked in the top ten percent out of 373 participating hospitals in the Vermont Oxford NICU morbidity and mortality study.
Our Diabetes Care Center is recognized by the American Diabetes Association as meeting the national standards for excellence in patient education.
These outstanding achievements of our hospital can be directly attributed to the dedication and commitment of our doctors, nurses, therapists, and clinicians to our patients, their families, and to our community.
