It’s happening. Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center, the single largest health care construction project in the history of the San Fernando Valley, is taking shape. Our new medical campus will soon offer increased access to quality health programs and services for more people in our community just as we all dreamed.
As we embark on our 50th anniversary, we want to reaffirm our commitment to the community. While there is much to celebrate, there is still more work to be done and we cannot do it without you. Our hospital is making long-term plans to build on our community’s legacy of philanthropy to meet our community’s needs for the next 50 years. To build on our community’s legacy of philanthropy, Providence Tarzana Foundation invites you to join our 50 for 50 Bequest Initiative.
