The Emergency Department at Glendale Adventist Medical Center is a comprehensive care center that is well equipped to meet any medical crisis, large or small, from bandaging scrapes and bruises to treating cardiac arrest. Our goal is to improve our customer's condition, quickly and comfortably. All of our Emergency Department physicians and nurses are certified in emergency care. They are here to serve you seven days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
