Adventist Health’s Healing Heritage: An Integration of Faith and Healing

Our commitment to quality healthcare is rooted in our heritage, which dates back to 1866 when the first Seventh-day Adventist healthcare facility opened in Battle Creek, Michigan. These were dedicated pioneers promoted the at-the-time radical concepts of proper nutrition, exercise, and sanitation.

More than a century later, this healthcare system is sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist church spans the globe with more than 160 hospitals and nearly 500 clinics, nursing homes and dispensaries worldwide. All along, holding to the same vision of treating the whole person-mind, body, and spirit.

Originally, Adventist medical centers were governed by regional church leadership. As healthcare grows more complex, it became apparent specialized expertise was needed. In 1972, the church authorized centralized control and operations of its healthcare instituitions at the multistate level. A year later, regional divisions were formed based on the church’s infrastructure, known as the North Pacific Union as Northwest Medical Foundation and in the Pacific Union as Adventist Health Services. In 1980, the two entities joined to form Adventist Health System/West, now known simply as Adventist Health.

We owe much of our heritage and organizational success to the Seventh-day Adventist Church, which has long been a promoter of prevention and whole-person care. Inspired by our belief in the loving and healing power of Jesus Christ, we aim to bring physical, mental and spiritual health and healing to our neighbors of all faiths.

Every individual, regardless of personal beliefs, is welcome in our facilities. We are also eager to partner with members of other faiths to enhance the health of the communities we serve.

While Adventist Health’s holdings are based solely on the West Coast and in Hawaii, Seventh-day Adventist healthcare spans the entire United States and dates back to 1866.

Adventist Health Glendale Partners with Pfizer on Innovative Drug Research!

Adventist Health Glendale’s Office of Integrated Research (OIR) partners with pharmaceutical companies to bring cutting-edge treatments to our community! Principal investigators are local AHGL physicians who work with the OIR and together they make up the research team. The research team is dedicated to improving the health of our community through excellence in innovative clinical research and providing promising new treatments that would otherwise not be widely available to the public.

Currently, the research team is working on upcoming oncology studies that have the potential to change the way that certain types of cancer are treated. We have partnered with Pfizer for a Triple Negative Breast Cancer study that uniquely offers targeted therapy and free tumor DNA testing. This study, called the NEOTALA Study, offers a once-a-day oral drug prior to surgery which might reduce tumor size and slow tumor growth. You can learn more on

There are two studies on the horizon, that are treatments for non-small cell lung cancer. These two studies offer a novel immunotherapy agent that will enhance the immune system to help fight cancer cells. This treatment is part of a new wave of “Precision Medicine” which will offer patients more customized care based on their genes and history.

These are advanced protocols not widely available in our market. Patients enrolled in clinical trials will meet with a study doctor on the AHGL campus and may qualify for study-related procedures and treatment at no cost. Patients enrolling in clinical trials at AHGL are encouraged to maintain their relationship with their primary oncologist, reducing the need to travel to far away facilities for cancer treatments. We’re excited to see where our research takes us!

Adventist Health White Memorial Mission Trip to Armenia

We’re invested in our communities health, but we know that we’re all God’s children. That is why our staff goes on mission trips around the world – so we can serve other communities and spread Adventist Health’s message around the world. Learn about our recent trip Mission Trip to Armenia in this letter written by the President of Adventist Health White Memorial, John Raffoul:

Hi Folks,

I just got back from a mission trip to Armenia. Several of our physicians and associates joined me as well. It was a wonderful trip that included two sites. A team went to Noyemberyan where they delivered care to over 1,455 patients and conducted 50 major surgeries. The second team, which I was part of, proceeded to Stepanakert where we conducted over 250 major surgeries and visited three outlying villages and conducted clinics. We were able to see over 308 patients in these villages and deliver much needed medical care. Special thanks to Drs. Laurence and Mary Spencer-Smith who worked tirelessly from morning to night to serve the people of Armenia. Also, thanks to Dr. Sam Loh, Dr. Sarkis Kiramijian and Dr. Simon Keushkerian as well as our chaplain Edgar Urbina, Becky Berberian, Meri Edjhuryan, Pui Yi Tam, and Henrik Yaghoobian. Everyone worked very hard and made a huge difference in the lives of the people who needed medical care very desperately.

Our team included 70 people from Adventist Health Glendale, Adventist Health White Memorial, Chevy Chase Surgery Center, PIH, Providence St. Joseph, Beverly Hospital and several other institutions. The trip was very successful and the impact was felt throughout the country from Yerevan to Artsakh. This trip was sponsored by Adventist Health Southern California. Adventist Health Glendale was the lead institution on this trip as they have been going to Armenia for several years.

I feel very fortunate to work with such a dedicated group of individuals who give selflessly of their talents and resources to help those who are less fortunate. I am also thankful for Adventist Health who is committed to our mission and to Live God’s Love and to bring our mission statement alive through action. I invite you to join us next year as we travel to Zambia Africa again for the 2019 mission trip.

Armenia is a beautiful country. Here are some memorable pictures to enjoy!
