Where You’ll Live

Tarzana, Los Angeles is likely the only neighborhood in the United States named after an early 20th century pulp hero. This western Los Angeles neighborhood sits on the site of a ranch owned by Edgar Rice Burroghs, the creator of the storied jungle adventurer. Today, Burroughs’ old ranch features a temperate climate, a comfortably low population density, and easy access to California parkland, giving it a small-town feel inside of America’s second-largest city.

Its 119,000-plus caregivers/employees serve in 51 hospitals, more than 800 clinics and a comprehensive range of health and social services.
