  • Posted On:

AVMC recently nominated for its impact on patients and greater community

(LANCASTER, Calif., September 13, 2022) — Antelope Valley Medical Center was recently nominated by the Los Angeles Business Journal’s Health Care Leadership Award, in the category of Top Hospital/Medical Center. Additionally, AVMC’s CEO Edward Mirzabegian was also nominated in the individual category for Hospital CEO of the Year.

The hospital was recognized for their contribution and leadership during the height of the pandemic. AVMC lead the healthcare front with COVID-related activities including testing and vaccination operations for Antelope Valley teachers, healthcare workers and community members. When the hospital was overcome with an increase in COVID patients, AVMC met the community’s need with an outdoor field hospital, allowing AVMC to treat hundreds more patients.

During that same period, AVMC successfully added new medical services that included two new heart procedures, a bariatric program, and a thrombectomy procedure that can save the lives of stroke patients. AVMC also brought the Antelope Valley Outpatient Imaging Center (AVOIC) under its management to offer a broader line of outpatient radiology services. There is also plans for a new Behavioral Health and Rehabilitation Hospital.

“The important role AVMC has in the community is not taken lightly, and the hospital takes on that responsibility with compassionate, high quality care and a strong commitment to the people of the Antelope Valley,” said Edward Mirzabegian, Chief Executive Officer of Antelope Valley Medical Center. “Our goal is to continue growing programs available to AV residents, so they don’t have to drive 50 miles for health care services.”
