SMUCLA Participates in Fourth of July Parade

Key SMUCLA programs and services were prominently on display at this year’s Pacific Palisades Fourth of July Parade, a community-wide celebration.

The hospital partnered with Buerge Motors in West Los Angeles, whose president, Jim Buerge, serves on the SMUCLA Board of Advisors, to sponsor the event.

Hospital employees, physicians and board members rode in convertible cars and electric cars displaying signage promoting key hospital services, including the Nethercutt Emergency Center, The BirthPlace and neonatal ICU, new Women’s Imaging Center, geriatrics and orthopaedics.
