Our History

In 1993, the Glendale Memorial Hospital Foundation formed a committee to determine the health needs
of underprovided children in the community. A needs assessment revealed that uninsured children of
the working poor were particularly limited in their ability to receive preventative care. Local emergency
rooms and school nurses were providing primary care to the children who had no other access to
physicians, dentists or specialists. As a result, Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center, Verdugo
Hills Hospital, Glendale Adventist Medical Center, Glendale Unified School District, and the City of Glendale joined together and formed Glendale Healthy Kids.
