Cedars-Sinai Health System contributed $15.4 billion in economic benefit to Southern California in fiscal year 2021 by creating and supporting tens of thousands of jobs, fueling major construction spending and assisting numerous community benefit programs across the Los Angeles region, according to a new analysis.
