Torrance Memorial Foundation


The Ambassadors Program is the oldest support organization of the Torrance Memorial Medical Center. Membership is comprised of community leaders, physicians, and local residents dedicated to promoting and financially contributing to the Medical Center. Their philanthropic commitment plays a significant role in the healthcare programs and services offered at the medical center, which benefit hundreds of South Bay and Peninsula residents each year.

Programs partially funded through the work of the Ambassadors include:

Ambassador members represent the medical center in the community and share a common vision for the hospital's future. As an Ambassador, members offer their knowledge of Torrance Memorial to individuals who are less familiar with services and program opportunities available at the medical center.

With Ambassador support comes involvement, recognition and the satisfaction of knowing you are making an important contribution to your community.

Ambassador Support Means Award-Winning Quality Care

Employees, physicians and volunteers dedicate themselves to providing outstanding quality and service to families in the community. Their commitment to excellence is demonstrated by the medical center's long history of awards and positive ranking in independent consumer studies.

We Give

When every second counts, having a first-rate hospital that's close by can be a lifesaver. We think it's so important to support the community facilities we rely on."
