I see no one answered you...maybe because you didn't specify what you mean by "best"? Or "LA area"? Or where you'll be living? Or how far/much are you willing to commute?

As has been said, "best" means different things to different people.

Hospitals that have a largely MEDI-CAL patient base may not be 'best' hospitals but if you want to see a lot of stabbings and gun shot wounds, you would want to work at Centinela-Freeman Regional Medical Center, in Inglewood.

The other way to look at this is to work where the wealthy go for hospitalization. They will have the best physicians, etc. working at their hospitals:

As Pilgrims Progress, below, said: Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles

Providence Saint John's Health Center, Santa Monica

Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Westwood

LAC+USC Medical Center, East Los Angeles

...............

Good Samaritan Hospital, Los Angeles

Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center, Los Angeles

......................

In the San Fernando Valley:


Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, Burbank

Glendale Adventist Medical Center, Glendale

..................
In Orange County (Disneyland) there are:


Hoag Memorial Hospital, Costa Mesa

St. Jude Medical Center, Fullerton

UC Irvine Medical Center, Irvine


There are several other large hospitals in L.A.:

White Memorial Medical Center -mostly Medi-Cal- in Los Angeles

Citrus Valley Medical Center-Queen of the Valley, West Covina (Do not work here)

Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital, Los Angeles

PIH Health, formerly, Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital, Whittier


Long Beach: (both good hospitals)

Long Beach Memorial Medical Center

St. Mary Medical Center


Torrance:

Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center


Harbor City:

L.A. County-Harbor-UCLA Medical Center




There are quite a few smaller bed hospitals but if you are into health care, then you already know the largest facilities are the best, as far as seeing the most different types of patients and the ability to be transferred around to different departments.


Since L.A. is so dense, you don't have to live where the hospital is but you do need to account for freeway traffic.


The best way to make a list, especially of all the L.A. hospitals, is to use the AHA's Guide to the Healthcare Field- it lists all hospitals by City and State, Affiliation, Corporate Entity and you can look up each hospital and see what services they provide and the number of beds for each hospital plus current census, assuming you are looking at a current copy of the AHA Guide. You will need to either buy into a subscription, very expensive, buy a book off eBay, less expensive but you need to buy a current version for it to be helpful or go to your library, making sure in advance they have a copy in the Reference Library section.
