Just south of the US-101 Freeway, the steel frame of Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center's $624-million expansion is starting to make its presence felt.
The project, now rising at the northeast corner of the hospital campus, is highlighted by a six-story patient tower featuring 190 private rooms. Plans also call for a 600-car garage to serve the new facility, as well as existing buildings within the property.
Perkins + Will is designing the 120-foot-tall building, which will be clearly visible from the adjacent freeway, as well as the surrounding neighborhood.
At ground-level, the project includes a new landscaped garden, connecting the new patient tower with the adjoining Women's Pavilion.
The project is the result of a state mandate to either retrofit or replace acute care medical facilities for earthquake safety prior to 2030. Cedars-Sinai is planning to rebuild its Marina Del Rey Hospital in Del Rey for the same purpose.
