Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

For Patients

Profile for Patients

Cedars-Sinai, the largest academic medical center in California, is an independent nonprofit institution with an unparalleled commitment to serving patients and families.

Our commitment to clinical excellence, world-class research, education and community outreach are core tenets of our mission. We live this mission through the contributions of our physicians, employees, volunteers and donors. We believe that today’s research can lead to tomorrow’s cure and that providing compassionate care coupled with advanced treatments can change lives.

  • For more than 20 years, Los Angeles area residents have named Cedars-Sinai the “Most Preferred Hospital for All Health Needs” in National Research Corporation’s annual Healthcare Market Guide survey.
  • Cedars-Sinai was ranked as one of America's Best Hospitals for 2012-13 by U.S. News & World Report in 12 specialties; cancer; cardiology and heart surgery; diabetes and endocrinology; ear, nose and throat; gastroenterology; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; neurology and neurosurgery; orthopedics; pulmonology; and urology.
  • We’ve embarked on a core quest to pioneer research that moves swiftly, safely and powerfully from laboratory bench to bedside treatment for our patients, with Cedars-Sinai researchers now developing new therapies for cancer, neurological and cardiac disorders, among others. Clinical trials are under way on many other innovative treatments, such as a brain cancer vaccine, cardiac stem cell therapy to regenerate damaged heart muscle and brain cooling to minimize the damage caused by strokes.
  • Cedars-Sinai contributed more than $600 million in fiscal year 2011 to community benefit programs. These efforts have increased access to healthcare for vulnerable, under-served populations; empowered communities to become healthier through prevention programs and services; provided community service; supported translational and clinical research; and allowed us to offer free or low-cost care for the uninsured and those with limited means.
