Eight months after our previous update, the steel skeleton of the new Cedars-Sinai Marina Del Rey Hospital is starting to take shape.

The project, located at 4640-4660 Lincoln Boulevard, will eventually consist of a nine-story building on land which previously housed surface parking lot and a medical office building. The new construction, which is oriented toward Lincoln Boulevard, is being built adjacent to the existing 1970s era hospital, which will remain in operation until the new facility opens.

HDR, Inc. is designing the building, which will rise to a maximum height of approximately 190 feet. According to a presentation given to the Los Angeles City Planning Commission in 2020, the new hospital is expected to initially provide a maximum of 96 patient beds, with the potential to eventually expand to 160 beds.

The replacement hospital will include new operating rooms, cardiac catheterization and gastroenterology labs, interventional procedure suites, and an expanded emergency department.

Completion of the new building is expected by 2028, per the website of contractor Rudolph and Sletten, Inc.

Cedars-Sinai is rebuilding the Marina Del Rey Hospital due to a state law which requires the retrofit or replacement of acute care facilities prior to the year 2030. Cedars joins Kaiser Permanente, Dignity Health, and several other health systems which have also moved to upgrade or redevelop their own Los Angeles area facilities before the deadline.

To a similar end, Cedars-Sinai and Providence St. Joseph Health have recently completed work on a $624-million expansion of a hospital campus in Tarzana, and Cedars has since received approvals to expand and upgrade its main campus in Beverly Grove.
