Located in Playa Vista, the Cedars-Sinai clinic is designed to appeal to the diverse demographics of the adjacent tech community of “Silicon Beach” by providing convenient access to high-quality, patient-centered services close to where people live and work. Located on the second, third, and fourth levels of a centrally located building at Runway, the clinic is surrounded by restaurants, shops, a movie theater, and housing. The interior design incorporates technology, innovative care models, and design trends into the facility, while reflecting the high-quality of care associated with the Cedars-Sinai brand. Using a design reflective of upscale tech offices, the space is infused with varying materials, such as marble, brass, reclaimed wood, and a palette of charcoal greys and classic neutrals highlighted with pops of color. Inspired by the local coastal and wetland environment, graphic patterns are featured throughout to reinforce a floor-by-floor organization of clinical spaces. Urgent Care resides on the second floor and includes a landscaped terrace garden, which provides a visual distraction and place of respite for patients and staff, as well as a space for larger groups to facilitate wellness events, staff meetings, and presentations. Primary Care is housed on the third floor and OB/GYN + Pediatrics on the fourth floor. The clinic includes exam and procedure rooms, offices and conference rooms, a children’s waiting area, additional waiting and reception areas, and specimen laboratories.
