Northridge Hospital Medical Center ( in Northridge, CA, is the newest addition to the Angie's Spa family, and the organization's first venture into providing spa services to patients of all ages and genders. Northridge Hospital will launch a state-of-the-art Wellness Center in support of their commitment to providing patients with non-traditional services to compliment traditional treatments. Angie's Spa will play an important role in the launch of this center.
