Tiger Woods was moved to a different hospital Thursday night, just a few days after he had surgery following a single-car crash in Los Angeles.

The golfing legend was moved from Harbors-UCLA Medical Center, a level 1 trauma center, to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, also in LA.

Dr. Anish Mahajan, the Chief Medical Officer at Harbor-UCLA, confirmed the transfer in a statement.

“On behalf of our staff, it was an honor to provide orthopedic care trauma care to one of our generation’s greatest athletes,” Mahajan said. “Harbor-UCLA Medical Center is a teaching hospital and one of only five Level 1 Trauma Centers in Los Angeles County.”

Cedars-Sinai is also a level 1 trauma center.

Woods was behind the wheel for a single-car rollover accident in the suburb of Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., on Tuesday morning. His car was traveling downhill when it struck a sign in the center divider and sheared through a tree, per LA law enforcement officials. The car came to a stop in the brush next to the road.

Woods was taken to Harbors-UCLA Medical Center, where he underwent emergency surgery for “significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity,” Mahajan said.
