Now when the ED calls, you will know

Cedars-Sinai has implemented a new Emergency Department Caller ID system so that physicians will know immediately when the ED is calling them for an emergent patient care issue.

It used to be that every call  coming from Cedars-Sinai displayed the same number - (310) 423-3277. As a result no one knew when the ED was calling. 

Now, when the ED calls you on a cellphone, the number (310) 423-2295 will display on the screen. If you program this number into your phone's contact list, it will display both CSMC_ED and the number.

Calls to landlines (office and home phones) using AT&T and Verizon will display CSMC_ED along with the 310-423-2295 number. Calls made to Time Warner VoIP land lines will display Cedars ME along with the (310) 423-2295 number.
