$15 Million Grant to Fund New Pediatric Unit


With the generous support of our donors, we are impacting lives here in San Fernando Valley every day.



$15 Million Grant to Fund New Pediatric Unit

The new 188,000-square-foot patient tower under construction will include a dedicated pediatric floor, thanks in part to a $15 million grant awarded by the state of California, the largest grant awarded to our medical center.

Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center was named one of 11 recipients to receive the grant, out of 160 eligible non-profit hospitals in California. The award is the result of a 2018 proposition enabling the state to issue an additional $1.5 billion in general obligation bonds to fund children’s hospitals.

“Our goal is to expand and improve healthcare access for pediatric patients in the San Fernando Valley and surrounding communities, including children from underserved, low-income, and uninsured families,” said Dale Surowitz, former chief executive of Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center. “This grant helps us provide specialized pediatric care for these families closer to home.”

The new floor will unite the 16-bed Pediatric Unit and the 8-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) under one dedicated space.

Funds will also be used to renovate the existing 21-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) with upgraded equipment, new paint, flooring, and a new nursing station.

By expanding and enhancing the pediatric unit and PICU, the hospital anticipates a 93% combined increase in patient volume upon completion of this project.
