Cedars-Sinai’s commitment to meeting the community’s health needs has been its deﬁning quality since its founding in 1902 as the 12-bed Kaspare Cohn Hospital in Angeleno Heights. Our dedication to excellence, compassion and innovation is rooted in the Judaic tradition as well as to the art and science of healing, which informs every aspect of our four-fold mission:
- Leadership and excellence in delivering quality healthcare services
- Expanding the horizons of medical knowledge through biomedical research
- Educating and training physicians and other healthcare professionals
- Striving to improve the health status of the community
Cedars-Sinai’s commitment to community beneﬁt—including free and part-pay care for the uninsured and those with limited means—is not just part of our mission and responsibility to the community, it’s how we express our Jewish values. Partnering with the Kalsman Institute on Judaism and Health by co-creating Jewish Wisdom and Wellness: A Festival of Learning is just another way for Cedars-Sinai to engage the community and fulﬁll our mission.
