Hospital Description

Antelope Valley Hospital was opened in 1955, and is one of 14 level II trauma centers in LA. Since 2010, Antelope Valley has had an Advanced Primary Stroke Center, certified by the American Heart Association. The facility also includes a Level IIIB NICU, certified cancer center, and a bariatric weight-loss program. Antelope Valley Hospital also offers inpatient mental health care, and pediatric care.

With its huge offering of culture situated in an arid climate, Los Angeles is often the number one place to go for many travel nurses. Antelope Valley Hospital is located in Lancaster, California, a charter city about 70 miles north of downtown LA. Part of a twin city complex with Palmdale, Lancaster is a large city unto itself with huge population growth and plenty of potential. Summers are hot, of course, but winters are particularly mild and lovely for all those travel nurses who have had it with colder climates. Downtown Lancaster is designated as a BLVD Cultural District, offering plenty of arts, restaurants, and family friendly museums and cultural events. Lancaster is also home to the first musical road in the United States that “plays” part of the William Tell Overture when driven over. The California Poppy Reserve (don’t worry, these poppies won’t make you sleepy, but long nursing shifts will) draws in more than 60,000 visitors during the spring and there’s an abundance of street fairs and farmers markets held throughout the year. Perhaps Antelope Valley Hospital can draw you in on your next travel nursing contract!
