Cedars-Sinai Expands Medical Services in Santa Monica
By Lookout Staff
January 29, 2019 -- Cedars-Sinai is adding its first primary care practice in Santa Monica as part of the expansion of its local offices, hospital officials announced Monday.
In the coming months, the health system will add specialists in hematology and oncology, neurology, cardiology, and ear, nose and throat to the current gastroenterology practice, officials said.
The site at 1919 Santa Monica Boulevard will also serve as the new Santa Monica location for The Angeles Clinic and Research Institute, an affiliate of Cedars-Sinai.
The expanded 34,000-square-foot facility takes up four floors and includes four primary care physicians who are currently accepting new patients, as well as on-site labs and X-rays.
"These enhanced offices are part of our ongoing efforts to meet the growing demand for outstanding, comprehensive healthcare close to where patients live and work," said John Jenrette, MD, executive vice president of Cedars-Sinai Medical Network.
The offices, which are located across the street from orthopedic care at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute, will serve Santa Monica and neighboring communities, officials said.
They include Pacific Palisades, Venice, Brentwood, Mar Vista, Marina del Rey and West Los Angeles.
"We hope these offices become a healthcare destination for local patients who want Cedars-Sinai care without traveling across town," said Mary Clare Lingel, vice president of Strategic Integration at Cedars-Sinai Medical Network.
The area is also being served by the recently acquired Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital and the recent additions of primary and urgent care facilities in Culver City and Playa Vista, officials said.
The Angeles Clinic and Research Institute at the expanded location in Santa Monica will "feature a range of prominent cancer specialists and services including hematology and oncology, surgical oncology and subspecialists in breast, lung, urology, gastroenterology and melanoma," officials said.
"We've designed a sophisticated space and inviting atmosphere where patients can receive world-class care, but still feel at ease being near home," said Lawrence Piro, MD, CEO of The Angeles Clinic and Research Institute.
