Guide to Top US Metro Areas: Los Angeles

Guide to Top US Metro Areas: Los Angeles


True to its Hollywood and entertainment roots, it’s the city where the healthcare facilities and schools feature stars’ names- for example, the Steven Spielberg Pediatric Research Center and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. And it¹s a city of great clinical research substance where breakthroughs happen – from the first heart-lung transplant in 1988 to the current promising research using stem cells to discover a gene therapy for AIDs.

Los Angeles is full of extremes. While it’s home to some of the finest plastic surgeons in the country, you’ll never classify it solely as a city of appearances alone. Along with Boston, Los Angeles hosts two of the 17 Best Hospitals Honor Roll winners (the annual ranking by U.S. News and World Reports).
