Director's Message: Cancer Care for Los Angeles and Beyond

This is an exciting and transformational time for Cedars-Sinai—which was ranked as the No. 8 hospital in the nation by U.S. News & World Report in 2019-2020 and No. 12 for cancer, which encompasses the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute, as well as all cancer research and clinical activities across the Cedars-Sinai.

Our far-reaching care and research are carried out in communities across Los Angeles: at The Angeles Clinic and Research Institute, Cedars-Sinai Valley Oncology Medical Group, Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital, the Hunt Cancer Institute of Torrance Memorial, Tower Hematology Oncology Medical Group and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

The opportunities and potential presented by Cedars-Sinai Cancer are truly remarkable. I look forward to serving the cancer patients of Los Angeles and beyond, and offering them the latest advances in research and clinical care.
