Glendale Adventist starts populating new facility with patients

Glendale Adventist Medical Center today will start admitting patients into a new 35,000-square-foot section of the West Tower, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The third phase of the tower adds 60 new beds, including two new intensive care units, to the hospital, bringing the total number to 515. That makes Glendale Adventist the largest hospital, in terms of bed count, in the San Fernando Valley, spokeswoman Alicia Gonzalez said in an email.

The grand opening was celebrated earlier this month, but the section had to be licensed and certified before accepting patients.
