US-based speciality care provider Cedars-Sinai has received a $100m donation intended to help advance surgical care, training and research.

The funds were provided by philanthropists Jim and Eleanor Randall, as well as the Randall Family Foundation.

Cedars-Sinai will use them to establish a surgery centre named the Jim and Eleanor Randall Department of Surgery.

Jim Randall said: “Eleanor and I believe deeply in Cedars-Sinai’s vision and the exceptional work being performed by the Department of Surgery team.

“We wish to continue fostering lifesaving campaigns and extend this gift with that full intention.”

Based in California, Cedars-Sinai aims to provide specialised care to patients across Los Angeles and other regions.

The company said the funding will support its surgical capabilities and research across various specialities, including critical procedures in cancer, trauma, otolaryngology, transplant, vascular, chest, gastrointestinal and reconstructive plastic surgeries.

Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre is capable of performing nearly 32,000 operations a year across all therapy areas.

Cedars-Sinai will also use the new funding to establish the Jim and Eleanor Randall Chair in Surgery in honour of Edward Phillips.

Phillips is the executive vice-chair of the newly named department and the Dolly Parton chair in Surgical Innovation, having held leadership roles at Cedars-Sinai for more than 40 years.

Cedars-Sinai described him as an ‘internationally recognised developer of novel surgical techniques and laparoscopic instrumentation used in minimally invasive procedures’.

Cedars-Sinai and the Warschaw Law Chair in Healthcare Leadership president and CEO Thomas Priselac said: “This amazing gift from the Randall family reinforces Cedars-Sinai’s position as a leader in academic medicine.

“It also ensures we remain at the forefront in training future generations of surgical specialists.

“The Randalls’ visionary investment builds on this institution’s quest to pioneer new surgical methods and technology that will save lives.”

Earlier this year, Cedars-Sinai’s global arm Cedars-Sinai International opened an office in the Novena medical hub area of Singapore.
