Cedars-Sinai has selected the contractor to build the new Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital, and construction of the technologically advanced community hospital is scheduled to begin in October.
"After years of community outreach efforts — gaining support from key community leaders, organizations and the city of Los Angeles — we're excited to begin building a new hospital that will allow those who live and work in the Marina del Rey area to receive the highest-quality healthcare without having to leave their neighborhoods," said Joanne Laguna-Kennedy, vice president and chief operating officer of Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital.
The new nine-story building will augment and expand the hospital’s historical strength in surgery and emergency services, which have been critical to the community during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The contractor, Rudolph and Sletten Inc., will build the new facility along Lincoln Boulevard, allowing the existing hospital to remain fully operational during construction. Once the new building is completed, the old building will be demolished.
To make space for construction activity, a new lobby and main entrance will open on the north side of the hospital. Patients and visitors will be able to access the new North Lobby Entrance by entering the hospital campus from Mindanao Way and parking in the North Lot. The South Lobby Entrance will close later this year.
