US-based Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center has opened a new patient tower, called the Friese Family Tower.

Spanning about 200,000ft², this five-storey building is part of the hospital’s broader expansion plan. It is named after the Friese family, who donated $50m for its construction.

The facility houses 150 private patient rooms, an expanded emergency department, a pharmacy, a paediatric unit, a cardiovascular unit, and a critical care unit.

It also incorporates advanced medical technology such as a 512-slice CT scanner.

The tower has visitor waiting rooms and sleeping arrangements for families.

It features a nature-oriented design theme and energy-efficient construction according to Silver LEED specifications.

Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center chief executive Nick Lymberopoulos said: “The Friese Family Tower marks the beginning of a new era of health care in the San Fernando Valley.

“When we began construction on this building six years ago, we said we wanted to create a modern, full-service health care campus that could offer Valley residents incredible care incredibly close to home.

“We are grateful to the team at Cedars-Sinai, our physicians, caregivers, donors, partners, and the community for their collaboration in building this new facility that will help transform the delivery of health care in this region.”      

Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center has been offering healthcare services in the San Fernando Valley since 1973.
