"After 18 years of practice, I'd say the most rewarding part of practicing at Glendale Memorial is working with such a diverse and dedicated group of healthcare professionals, including nurses, physicians, administrators and ancillary staff. Although the hospital is large enough to attract patients from throughout the area, there is a "community hospital" feel throughout the medical staff.
"As an obstetrician, the quality of staff in Labor and Delivery and the NICU is essential for providing care. The Obstetricians are a close group of solo practioners who have an excellent working relationship and provide coverage for each other.
"I enjoy living in this area because Glendale is an up and coming city.There is so much to do, and businesses are targeting Glendale as a major city in southern California."
