Peter B Hirsch MD, PhD

Medical Director

A member of the Del Amo staff since the beginning of his career in 1981, Dr. Peter Hirsch is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Born and raised in Los Angeles, he completed medical school and his psychiatric residency at UCLA.

Dr. Hirsch says that working at the hospital has allowed him to help patients and their families at times of crisis when an opportunity for recovery and change is most acute. “Not only is there great satisfaction in helping people during these times, but doing so as part of the hospital’s interdisciplinary team allows me to feel that the work we are doing is inclusive of all aspects of a patient’s life,” he adds.

His dedication to this work and to Del Amo is clearly matched by the dedication of the hospital’s staff, which creates a professional and caring environment.
