The hospital had just 12 beds when it opened on September 21, 1902, and its services were initially free.

Founded by businessman Kaspare Cohn, Cedars of Lebanon Hospital was established as the Kaspare Cohn Hospital in 1902.


In 1910, the hospital relocated and expanded to Stephenson Avenue (now Whittier Boulevard), where it had 50 beds and a backhouse containing a 10-cot tubercular ward.


Meanwhile in 1918, the Bikur Cholim Society opened a two-room hospice, the Bikur Cholim Hospice, when the Great Influenza Pandemic hit the United States of America.


In 1921, the hospice relocated to an eight-bed facility in Boyle Heights and was renamed Bikur Cholim Hospital.


On November 7, 1926, it was renamed Mount Sinai Hospital and moved to a 50-bed facility on Bonnie Beach Place in Los Angeles.


In 1930, the hospital moved to 4833 Fountain Avenue, where it opened as Cedars of Lebanon Hospital, named after the religiously significant Lebanon Cedars tree (cedrus libani); which were highly sought after and used to build King Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem.


Later, in 1950, a new Mount Sinai Hospital was built on land donated by Emma and Hyman Levine at 8700 Beverly Boulevard.


Opened in 1996, it houses biomedical research aimed at discovering genetic, molecular and immunological factors that trigger disease.


In 2006, Cedars-Sinai added the Saperstein Critical Care Tower with 150 ICU beds.


In 2013, Cedars-Sinai opened its 800,000-square-foot Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion, which consists of eight stories of program space located over a six-story parking structure, on the eastern edge of its campus at the corner of San Vicente Boulevard and Gracie Allen Drive.


The Cedars-Sinai History of Medicine Program will offer a series of six-week courses on a variety of historical topics to the Cedars-Sinai community beginning May 26, 2021.
