The centerpiece of the new hospital is the five-story Friese Family Patient Tower featuring all private rooms and the latest in sustainable, energy-efficient design. The Emergency Department is being expanded to more than double its capacity.

U.S. News & World Report ranked Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana one of the top hospitals in Southern California and in the top 40 across California for quality care. It was lauded as high performing for performance in 10 procedures and specialties, including neurosurgery and treatment of COPD, heart attack, kidney failure, pneumonia, and stroke. In 2022, the hospital was the first in the San Fernando Valley to perform a robotic-assisted lobectomy to remove an aggressive earlystage lung cancer. The hospital was also the first in the Valley to perform leading-edge Aquablation therapy for the treatment of an enlarged prostate.
