Help Outpatients Skip the Wait at Drawing Stations

Did you know that Cedars-Sinai has not one, but three outpatient blood drawing stations?

Most medical staff members are familiar with the Plaza Drawing Station in Room 2803 of the South Tower, where the majority of patients go for their lab work.

During peak hours, you can help patients spend less time in line by directing them to one of two other locations, when appropriate. For example, the Medical Office Towers (MOT) Blood Draw Station on the East Tower's fifth floor is more convenient for patients visiting physicians in the MOT.

  • For Routine Blood Work
    Medical Office Towers Blood Draw Station in room 530 East
  • For Pre-Procedure Blood Work
    Anesthesia Pre-Procedure Evaluation Center (APEC) in the Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion, Plaza Level, adjacent to the patient/visitor elevators

Physicians should note that APEC is open only to patients who are scheduled for procedures in the Procedure Center at the Pavilion.
