Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (pronunciation: /ˈsiːdərz saɪˈnaɪ/) is a non-profit, tertiary hospital and multi-specialty academic health science center located in the Beverly Grove neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, United States.


The name "Cedars-Sinai" derives from the two hospitals that merged in 1961 to form the present medical center - Cedars of Lebanon and Mount Sinai. "Cedars of Lebanon" is a biblical reference to the famed cedar trees of Lebanon, symbolizing longevity and strength. "Mount Sinai" is a biblical term, referring to the mountain in Egypt where Moses received the Ten Commandments.


Cedars-Sinai Medical Center was established as a merger between two longstanding hospitals, Cedars of Lebanon and Mount Sinai, in 1961. Both hospitals had been serving the Los Angeles community since the early 20th century and were known for their commitment to high-quality healthcare and medical research.


Cedars-Sinai Medical Center offers a wide range of medical services, including Cardiology, Neurology, Oncology, Orthopedics, and Transplantation Services. It is also home to the Cedars-Sinai Research Institute, which conducts medical research in various fields.


Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is affiliated with several educational institutions, including the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and the Cedars-Sinai Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
