I would recommend the Southern and Western San Fernando Valley because the area is regarded as safe, trendy, and convenient. The communities include Sherman Oaks, Encino, Tarzana, Woodland Hills, West Hills, Canoga Park, Winnetka, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Chatsworth, Reseda, and Van Nuys.
Out of all of the aforementioned areas, Reseda, Van Nuys, Winnetka, Canoga Park, and Chatsworth would probably be the most affordable. The other areas are more upscale.
Some hospitals in this area include West Hills Hospital, Encino Tarzana Regional Medical Center, Kaiser Hospital, Providence Holy Cross, Providence Saint Joseph, Olive View Medical Center, and Valley Presbyterian Hospital.
