Cedars-Sinai Health System announced Tuesday its purchase of the 145-bed Marina del Rey Hospital and an adjacent medical office building.

Cedars-Sinai officials said the hospital, which was previously owned by a Westridge Capital-led partnership, will become a nonprofit operation, and all 660 employees will keep their jobs.

“Cedars-Sinai looks forward to working closely with Marina del Rey Hospital’s medical staff, management team and employees to understand the needs and opportunities for enhanced service to the community,” said Thomas Priselac, president/CEO of Cedars-Sinai Health System.

The hospital offers round-the-clock emergency care and features specialty areas such as orthopedics, women’s health and internal medicine.
