Best Pediatric Care

You can rest assured you are receiving the best care at Northridge Hospital. The Los Angeles Daily News readers voted us "Best Pediatric Care", plus Healthgrades named us a Five-Star Recipient for Maternity Care for 7 Years in a Row. Parents choose Northridge Hospital to deliver their newborn where there’s an entire floor dedicated solely to the birthing experience. Our program offers an extensive series of expectant parent classes, a baby portrait, online nursery service and more.

Our maternity suites are beautifully furnished and decorated for a “homelike” feel. Soft colors, wood floors and coordinating bedding offer a comfortable, yet highly functional and nurturing room for your stay. Behind the beautiful cabinets is advanced equipment that can be accessed should the need arise during delivery.
