Cedars Sinai Medical Center

Session Description

Cedars-Sinai Cancer’s nationally ranked, integrated oncology program developed a neighborhood strategy to improve access and engage in a broader system of research and clinical trials throughout Los Angeles, improving access to a premier cancer program through five new clinics. The sixth simultaneous endeavor was to literally “elevate” holistic healing environments at the flagship cancer center by moving out of the basement of the main hospital and co-locating clinics and infusion services together on the 7th floor of the Advanced Sciences Health Pavilion. This session will share experiential, operational, and clinical benefits achieved by expanding the concept of “neighborhood” to the development of the floor plan.
