Founders Day Exhibit

This exhibit traces the growth of Cedars-Sinai from its first days as the Kaspare Cohn Hospital, founded in 1902, to today's Medical Center, one that is internationally renowned for the best patient care that modern medicine has to offer.

Until now, much of the history of Cedar-Sinai has been obscured by time.  This is because virtually all of its early records and documents were lost when the hospitals physically merged in 1976.

Consequently newspaper articles, letters, memoirs, biographical profiles and oral histories have been used to reconstruct the past. Fortunately, this paintstaking efforts has been rewarded.  Fragment by fragment, Cedars-Sinai long and dramatic story has been restored.
