On Sunday, October 19, 2014 Sherman Oaks Hospital (SOH) was pleased to contribute to

The Sherman Oaks Chamber of Commerce 24th Annual Sherman Oaks Street Fair. An event that is now one of the largest block parties in the entire San Fernando Valley.

For the last 23 years, the Sherman Oaks Chamber has successfully attracted over 75,000 visitors to their community wide event. Sherman Oaks Hospital, as a participating Gold Sponsor, has helped the Chamber in past years earn over $400,000 in supplies, equipment, and cash support for the local public schools in our community. "Our organization understands that strong and productive local public schools are vital to the long-term health of a community and the businesses within it," says Dr. Bob Cohen, President of the Sherman Oaks Chamber.

SOH was delighted to partake in the dynamic Street Fair which gave the hospital an opportunity to showcase their new leadership, physicians, services, and connect directly with its community. Sherman Oaks hospital RNs also provided free blood pressure checks and the Amputation Prevention Center presented valuable information on wound care, prevention and its upcoming Diabetes Awareness event in November. "We believe effective communication and education within the community we serve helps enhance healthcare delivery. Our hospital RNs and staff who partake in these events help our hospital make these vital connections," states Roland Santos, Chief Nursing Officer at Sherman Oaks Hospital.

Sherman Oaks Hospital is non-profit and is owned and operated by Prime Healthcare Services. SOH offers 24/7 ER, high-quality inpatient, outpatient and "continuum of care" services.
