Discovery Meets Recovery

Cedars-Sinai Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion
Los Angeles, California, USA

“The Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion is the realization of Cedars-Sinai’s vision for 21st-century healthcare. As the program evolved in complexity and scale during the planning process, the hospital’s commitment to creating a state-of-the-art environment that would support a new model of collaborative practice only strengthened. More importantly, we understood that bringing the researchers and clinicians into the same facility as the patients would speed advances in research to benefit all.”

Robert Cull
Former Executive Project Director, Cedars-Sinai Health System

The 11-story Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion (AHSP) breaks down traditional institutional boundaries by combining world-class patient care, clinical offices, physician education, and training and research in one building.

With a research pavilion on the top two floors and clinics on lower levels, physicians can bring scientific breakthroughs to their patients with maximum safety and speed. Designed to bridge the gap between discovery and patient care, this new facility places research labs near clinical settings so physician-scientists can help transform medical care at Cedars-Sinai.

The flexible building houses translational research labs as well as outpatient centers of excellence, clinical functions and outpatient procedure centers. A plaza level features an educational center, café, pharmacy, blood lab and imaging facilities.

With its high-tech sensibility, sleek transparency and quality, well-crafted materials, the design of the building communicates the synergy of healthcare and science that is at its heart. Situated on a public edge of the Cedars-Sinai campus, adjacent to the primary circulation spine, the pavilion creates a new symbolic entry to the medical campus.

The LEED Gold design features materials that are environmentally friendly and energy-saving while also allowing for light and an enhanced sense of openness.

The project won a design award from the American Institute of Architects California Council. “This is an innovative project done really well, and a slam dunk,” said the jury.
