4. Huntington Hospital in Pasadena, Calf., a Cedars-Sinai affiliate, has launched the Helen and Will Webster Heart and Vascular Center. The new center will allow the hospital to boost its cardiac patient capacity by 30 percent, and expedite time to treatment. 

5. The University of California San Diego has received a $3.25 million donation from philanthropists Steven Strauss and Lise Wilson to establish the city's first cardiomyopathy center. The center will focus on identifying new tools for diagnosis and prevention of the condition, the development of new treatment options, and educating the next generation of physicians and scientists. It will be located at the university's medical school, within the cardiovascular institute.
