Best hospitals in CA?

  1. Hello, I was wondering what are "travel friendly" hospitals in LA, Santa Barbara, Beverly Hills, SanDiego, and Pasedena? Any comments or info on hospitals in these areas will be greatly appreciated! I will be going to CA in January as a traveller. Thank You!!

    You really should find out with which hospitals your travel agency has contracts. Not all hospitals use every agency.

    If I were traveling and wanted the southern CA area I would suggest Huntington (Pasadena), Cedars (Beverly Hills), Cottage (Santa Barbara), Scripps (San Diego). You should also know that not all hospitals have ER's or MTY/LD or in-patient Psych so where you end up will also depend on your specialty.

    There are probably more hospitals to avoid than work at.
