Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS - —Maria Castel­lucci

Cedars-Si­nai in Los An­ge­les will en­ter into an af­fil­i­a­tion agree­ment with Tor­rance (Calif.) Me­mo­rial Med­i­cal Cen­ter.

Un­der terms of the agree­ment, Cedars-Si­nai and Tor­rance, both not-for­profit or­ga­ni­za­tions, will col­lab­o­rate on co­or­di­na­tion of care and ac­cess to ser­vices. The goal is to in­crease ac­cess to clin­i­cal tri­als and med­i­cal re­search as well as share re­sources.

The af­fil­i­a­tion needs state ap­proval. If blessed, the ven­ture will func­tion un­der a new par­ent or­ga­ni­za­tion with a new board of di­rec­tors. Each or­ga­ni­za­tion will re­main in­de­pen­dent and con­tinue to have its own med­i­cal staff and board. Cedars-Si­nai op­er­ates its flag­ship hospi­tal as well as sev­eral ur­gent-care and spe­cialty-care cen­ters through­out Los An­ge­les. It also has a ma­jor re­search and ed­u­ca­tion arm, with more than 1,500 re­search projects and 473 med­i­cal res­i­dents and fel­lows.
