March Circle of Friends Honorees Announced

Eighty-seven physicians were among the nearly 100 people honored by the Circle of Friends program this past month.

Circle of Friends allows grateful patients to make a donation in honor of the physicians, nurses, caregivers and others who have made a difference during their time at Cedars-Sinai. When a gift is made, the person being honored receives a custom lapel pin and a letter of acknowledgement.
