Since its inception in 1902, Cedars-Sinai has evolved to become the largest nonprofit hospital in the western United States. It is consistently ranked as one of the country's best hospitals in cardiology and heart surgery (No. 8 in cardiology and heart surgery in the 2014 "Best Hospitals" guide in U.S. News & World Report). Saperstein Towers offers state-of-the art intensive-care facilities, including 12 cardiac intensive care unit beds and 24 cardiothoracic surgery intensive care unit beds. The cardiac transplant program is the largest adult program in the U.S. with a dedicated 32-bed heart failure/transplant inpatient unit featuring invasive hemodynamic monitoring capabilities. With the opening of the Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion, we now have nine cardiac catheterization suites, with four dedicated to clinical electrophysiology.
