Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center recently celebrated a traditional topping out ceremony, with the signing of a 22-foot steel beam, before it was hoisted atop the hospital’s new patient tower located in California’s San Fernando Valley.
The beam symbolizes the joining of two of Southern California’s leading health organizations that are partnering to establish a premier hospital to enhance care for residents and neighboring communities. The former Providence Tarzana Medical Center is in the midst of a more than half-billion-dollar expansion and renovation.
The joint venture will expand primary and specialty care services on the Providence Tarzana campus, as well as enhance other programs, including heart, cancer and women’s services.
Touted as the hospital of the future, it will include the new five-story patient care tower with all-private rooms, an expanded emergency department, an outdoor healing garden, new diagnostic and treatment services and enhanced outpatient and ambulatory services already under development.
McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., is the general contractor and Perkins&Will is the architect. The project is due for completion in 2023.
