Superior healthcare is available in Temple City, where private practices and specialty centers offer a broad spectrum of health-related services for local residents.

Methodist Hospital, located in neighboring Arcadia, is a 460-bed, not-for-profit hospital serving the western and central San Gabriel Valley.

Founded in 1903, Methodist Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. With a long tradition of serving the community, Methodist Hospital’s Community Outreach program works in concert with other community organizations to provide assistance to local residents. The goal of this program is to “improve the health status of our community by empowering citizens to make healthy life choices.” Please call 626-898-8000 or visit to learn more about the hospital, its programs and services.

Other area hospitals include City of Hope, the world-renowned cancer center; the 273-bed San Gabriel Valley Medical Center; Pasadena’s 636-bed Huntington Memorial Hospital; and the Greater El Monte Community Hospital. Aurora Las Encinas Hospital and BHC Alhambra Hospital are available to assist with behavioral needs.


Temple City is home to the first Spinal Aid Centers of America franchise in Los Angeles County. The center offers a technology called non-surgical spinal decompression, a treatment that targets sufferers of severe and chronic back pain. Because the treatment is non-invasive, there is no recovery period and no drugs are involved. Many private clinics and physicians’ groups are available in the community, meeting a diversity of needs. Assisted living and senior care facilities, dentists, chiropractors, optometrists and therapists are among the many health providers readily accessible to Temple City residents.
