It began in 1902 as a 12-bed hospital in the Angelino Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles. Today, Cedars-Sinai serves more than 1 million people each year in over 40 locations, with more than 4,500 physicians and nurses and 1,500 research projects in motion.

Quality patient care is our priority. Providing excellent clinical and service quality, offering compassionate care, and supporting research and medical education are essential to our mission. This mission is founded in the ethical and cultural precepts of the Judaic tradition, which inspire devotion to the art and science of healing and to the care we give our patients and staff.
Since its inception in 1902, Cedars-Sinai has evolved to become the largest nonprofit hospital in the western United States — one that’s internationally renowned for the best patient care modern medicine has to offer. Our support of the Los Angeles community grows stronger every day with our commitment to providing superior patient care, breakthrough biomedical research, graduate and undergraduate medical education and community service.
