The Ambassador Program is annual giving program and the premier support
organization of the Torrance Memorial Medical Center. Our strong partnership
with the community has always been at the heart of Torrance Memorial.
When Torrance Memorial opened its doors in 1925, the community began a
tradition of excellence and commitment that continues to this day. Because
of this tradition, the Ambassadors Program was founded over 40 years ago.
It supports a continuum of services with a goal of helping individuals
restore and regain their independence, while improving the overall quality
of their lives.

Representing Torrance Memorial
Ambassadors share a common vision for the hospital’s future in the
community. They understand the importance of supporting innovative and
vital programs and services. Ambassadors educate and offer knowledge to
individuals less familiar with Torrance Memorial Health System.
