If you love Grey’s Anatomy as much as I do and just so happen to live in Los Angeles, you might be stoked to find out that you can visit Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital right in Southern California!
The facade of the hospital is actually in North Hills, a neighborhood in Los Angeles. It’s the VA (Veterans Administration) Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center.
If you’re a big fan of the show, it won’t take long once you pull up until you recognize the front of the building, which has been shown quickly many times on Grey’s Anatomy.
In the few times I’ve visited, the hospital was closed and parking was never a problem. There are tons of spots available so you can spend more time just being awestruck and absorbing the fact that you’re right in front of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital 😛
If you make your way to the other side of the hospital, you’ll recognize that it’s a place where some scenes are filmed, typically people exiting or entering the building.
It doesn’t appear that scenes are shot in the actual facility, but it’s fun to look through the doors and see what’s inside anyway.
All in all, I’ve probably spent about 15 to 20 minutes on each of my visits here. There’s not too much to do other than look at the building, but if you really want to take it all in, there’s nothing wrong with standing outside and thinking about how cool it is to be at the hospital featured in Grey’s Anatomy.
Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital (formerly known as Seattle Grace [Mercy West} Hospital, aka the VA Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center) is located at:
16111 Plummer Street
North Hills, CA 91343
(Just in case you don’t drive or prefer to use public transit, there are actually two bus routes that stop right behind the hospital! Check out metro.net for more information.)

I could possibly be losing my mind, (it certainly wouldn’t be the first time), but sometime back in the early years of Gray’s, wasn’t the name Kittering or something similar associated with the name of the hospital? Like Grey Sloan + Kittering Memorial Hospital???
Hmm… I don’t think I remember that name! Googled it as well but nothing popped up on my end.
Maybe you mixed it up with Memorial Sloan Kettering, its a real hospital!
