Overview of Cedars-Sinai

 

Cedars-Sinai is known for providing the highest quality patient care that modern medicine has to offer.  Our dedication to excellence, compassion and innovation is rooted in the Judaic tradition and its devotion to the art and science of healing, which informs every aspect of our four-fold mission:

  • Leadership and excellence in delivering quality healthcare services
  • Expanding the horizons of medical knowledge through biomedical research
  • Educating and training physicians and other healthcare professionals
  • Striving to improve the health status of our community

We live this mission every day through the contributions of more than 2,000 physicians in every clinical specialty, 10,000 employees, 2,000 volunteers and 15,000 fundraising support group members. Together we provide world-class medicine to our patients, our community, and patients from across the United States and around the world.

Physicians and scientists at Cedars-Sinai are engaged in basic and clinical research to bring medical advancements directly from the laboratory to the bedside. As the largest academic medical center in the western United States, we’re also training the next generation of physicians, researchers and allied health professionals, with more than 350 residents and fellows participating in over 60 graduate medical education programs.
