Unique circular medical enter, located in the San Fernando Valley. Formed for interesting and efficient design and high quality patient care. A non-profit, interfaith hospital established in 1958, it stands as a living tribute to Valley residents, whose time, energy and money helped make this long-time dream a reality.
A note on the back of the card reads:
"I was surprised. I have never seen this hospital from an all sides. A block from Sepulveda. The rooms are on outside of circle. (Grandma was on 2nd floor of big one).and nurses, storage and such in center."
