Valley Presbyterian Hospital is a 350-bed[1] hospital in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California. Founded in 1958, architect William Pereira designed the original building. The facility specializes in maternal and child health, cardiac care, orthopedics, and critical care services. Valley Presbyterian Hospital is a STEMI Receiving Center for heart attack patients, equipped and staffed in the Cardiac Catheterization Unit to provide intervention within the critical 90 minutes following the onset of chest pain. The Women's and Children's Center features integrated medical specialty services. The Emergency Department is Approved for Pediatrics, one of the major EDAP hospitals in the San Fernando Valley.

Valley Presbyterian is one of the largest acute care hospitals in central San Fernando Valley. It treats over 100,000 patients every year. The hospital features the Robert I. Schueler Pediatric Care Center, the Fritz B. Burns Valley Cardiac Cath Lab, a Nurse Development Program to meet the nurse shortage, and upgrades to operating rooms for more and new types of procedures.

Valley Presbyterian Hospital is the only remaining full-service, independent, not-for-profit community hospital in the San Fernando Valley. It relies on donations and support.
