Tutor Perini Corporation’s subsidiary Rudolph and Sletten has secured a contract to construct a replacement hospital for Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital in Los Angeles County, California, the US.
Covering an area of 230,000ft2, the new nine-storey Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital will feature many new or enhanced services and programmes.
The hospital will have an emergency department with expanded diagnostic and treatment facilities, as well as additional operating rooms, private patient rooms, cardiac catheterisation and gastroenterology labs.
It will also feature interventional procedure suites to handle complex cases, such as treatments for strokes and other image-guided interventions.
The new facility will be built along Lincoln Boulevard. Construction works are scheduled to begin in October this year and will be completed by 2026.
The contract value is included in Tutor Perini’s third-quarter 2021 backlog.
During the construction phase, the existing structure of the Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital will be fully operational.
The hospital is part of Cedars-Sinai Health System, which was established in 2017.
In addition to Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital, Cedars-Sinai Health System consists of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Torrance Memorial.
It also comprises joint ventures such as California Rehabilitation Institute and Cedars-Sinai Providence Tarzana Medical Center.
Last July, Huntington Hospital entered into a definitive agreement to become an affiliate of Cedars-Sinai Health System, following a letter of intent signed in March 2020.
As part of the proposed affiliation, Huntington Hospital continued to receive investment for enterprise information technology, boosting ambulatory services and physician development.
In addition, the deal facilitated partnerships with other Cedars-Sinai Health System entities to allow access to affordable care across the region.
