Adventist Health Glendale is a nonprofit organization located in Glendale, California, USA. Adventist Health Glendale is one of the city's oldest businesses, founded in 1905, a year before Glendale was incorporated as a city. It was then known as Glendale Sanitarium, and it occupied the former Glendale Hotel, a 75-room Victorian structure on what is now Broadway Avenue.

It was owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as part of its mission of community caring that helped form its reputation as a "health resort" of choice. It is now a part of Adventist Health with the same mission.

In 2011, GAMC had been voted Glendale's Best Hospital for several years running. It also has a reputation as a Certified Advanced Primary Stroke Center, One of the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles and San Fernando Valleys, Gold Performance Plus Achievement Award from the American Stroke Association, and Three-Year Certificate of Approval with Commendations from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. It offers more than 80 support groups and ongoing health education classes.

In 2009, Adventist Health Glendale started HEALTHline, a weekly television show helping people to understand their health and health options. HEALTHline can also be viewed online.[1]


At the end of July 2017 Glendale Adventist Medical Center changed its name to Adventist Health Glendale.[2]


Dr. Peter Martin Keller husband of Nettie Florence Keller was shot to death by a patient at Glendale Sanitarium on October 1, 1931.[3]

Efren Saldivar, a respiratory therapist at Adventist Health Glendale until 1998, came to be dubbed the "Angel of Death" when he confessed to 50 murders of patients through the injection of muscle-paralyzing drugs, though he later retracted the confession. In 2002, he was charged with six murders and pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to prison for life. Many more patients are believed to have been murdered.[4][5][6]

Glendale Adventist Academy[edit]

In 1907, the Glendale Sanitarium, as it was called, had a one-room school in its basement. In the 1930s, that school relocated to a building in Chevy Chase and called itself Glendale Union Academy. Eventually, GUA relocated to its current location on Kimlin Drive and Academy Place and renamed itself Glendale Adventist Academy.[citation needed]


Adventist Health Glendale is involved in many annual events such as Glendale Downtown Dash[7] held on daylight savings day every March, the American Cancer Societys Relay for Life[citation needed] and American Heart Associations Saving Strokes.[citation needed]

Medical mission work[edit]

Starting in 2015 Adventist Health Glendale has had a partnership with Armenia Fund to provide medical services to Noyemberyan hospital, in Noyemberyan, Armenia. For each medical mission trip Adventist Health Glendale buys large amounts of medical equipment, surgical supplies, pharmaceuticals, and other required medical/surgical items.[8] And Armenia Fund ships the medical supplies to Noyemberyan hospital. 5,750 patients have been given care in internal medicine, cardiology, pulmonology, gynecology, neurology, orthopedics, and pediatrics. 235 surgeries were done, from gallbladder, hernia, orthopedic, and maxillofacial procedures to remove lumps and tumors.[9][10][11]


The services of Adventist Health Glendale are: Behavioral medicine, cardiology, diabetes, diagnostic imaging, drug rehabilitation, emergency department, Home health, hospice, laboratory, neonatal care, neuroscience, occupational therapy, oncology, pain management, pediatrics, physical therapy, radiology, sleep medicine, surgery, urgent care, wound care, and Women's health[12]
