We've got Dodgers Fever! Cedars-Sinai employees lined up this morning to buy tickets and celebrate being the official medical center for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
We're proud to once again support LA Pride! If you're heading out to the LA Pride festivities, make sure to stop by the carnival-themed Sober #Sizzle area sponsored by Cedars-Sinai.
Sizzle is an alcohol-free carnival within the festival that will feature a live DJ, special performances, drawings, games and prizes, cotton candy, and lots of fun!
In the last year, more than 600 Cedars-Sinai employees donated their time to volunteer at over 100 community health events. We're so proud of their dedication to building a healthier Los Angeles! #CedarsGratitude
Meet Sonia Ramirez-Rivera, a dietetic technician who began serving meals to patients at Cedars-Sinai in 2013.
"As a young girl, I remember my father had some health issues. He would occasionally have to make changes to his diet, which also improved his lifestyle as a whole. When I saw how much nutrition therapy could help improve a person’s life by encouraging them to make healthy choices, I was immediately motivated to have a career in nutrition."
Happy Nurses Week! This week we celebrate all the amazing nurses at Cedars-Sinai. Thank you for all you do for our patients!
We'll be at the Fort Irwin Transition summit on April 3rd. Visit Cedars-Sinai's Military Veterans recruiter, Steve Bettini to learn about the excellent opportunities we have waiting for veterans.
Passover is a time of celebration for the Jewish community. To prepare for Passover, many Jews rid their homes of chametz and thoroughly clean their kitchens to remove all traces of chametz. This process is called kashering. Cedars-Sinai has a kosher kitchen to prepare food for patients who keep kosher, and it too is prepared for Passover.
“When people see something in you and empower you to grow and move ahead, you can accomplish anything.”
It is very rewarding to make rounds in clinical areas, where I speak with patients to get their feedback and suggestions. I usually do this in my official role, but I also interact with patients on weekends when I volunteer with my labradoodle Cooper in the Barbara Cowen POOCH Volunteer Program.
My day begins around 5:30 am. It’s quiet. I can think, plan, and get a lot done. At 6:30 am, I meet with the medical center’s administrator on duty to receive a patient-status report and be informed of any unusual events.
I spend about 1-2 hours making rounds to see patients. That’s the best part.
