Cedars-Sinai Opens Flagship Medical Offices in Tarzana

San Fernando Valley Location Features Wide Range of Cancer Care; Orthopaedics and Internal Medicine Coming Soon

Cedars-Sinai marked a milestone in its goal to bring high-quality care to neighborhoods across the Southern California region by hosting the opening of its flagship medical offices in the San Fernando Valley on Jan. 29.

The 40,000-square-foot location at 18133 Ventura Blvd. features a multidisciplinary cancer center, with orthopaedic specialists from the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute and an internal medicine office following soon. The facility is a short drive from Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center.

"We are on a mission to bring our doctors and care closer to where our patients live and work," said John Jenrette, MD, executive vice president of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Network.

The Tarzana location offers extensive cancer care, including radiation oncology, medical oncology and an infusion center, surgical oncology and diagnostic imaging.

"We're the first to provide the Valley area with a full range of cancer services from an academic medical center," said Dan Theodorescu, MD, PhD, director of Cedars-Sinai Cancer. "We believe it's important to make life less complicated for our cancer patients. By offering comprehensive care in a convenient location, we hope to accomplish that."

The clinics also will include on-site labs and X-ray services. Most forms of insurance are accepted, including HMO, POS, PPO and Medicare.

"We are proud and excited to be opening our flagship Valley medical offices in Tarzana," said Cedars-Sinai President and CEO Thomas M. Priselac. "We are ensuring that a community of expert physicians and caregivers is right there, ready to make a difference."
