Care For Our Youngest Patients
Sometimes babies are born prematurely or with special medical needs. Although
no parent wants to think the unthinkable, it's important to know that
Torrance Memorial offers the benefits of a comprehensive Level III Neonatal
Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Parents can take comfort in knowing our NICU
offers most services needed for complex care.
Our NICU offers specialized care delivered by a diverse team, including:
- Physicians called neonatologists, who are board-certified and trained in
caring for your child
- Highly skilled and trained nurses
- Respiratory therapists who specialize in the needs of premature infants
- NICU staff is available around the clock
Torrance Memorial also offers the availability of neonatal sub-specialists,
such as board-certified physicians specializing in:
- Pediatric surgery
- Neurology and neurosurgery
Parents who know they have a higher-risk pregnancy are able to take advantage
of the Maternity Services Tours and arrange a private tour through the
NICU. Here you will be able to meet some of our NICU nurses and staff.
The NICU at Torrance Memorial offers several innovative programs:
Our Child Life Specialist meets the individual needs of your baby's
siblings during your visit.

in this annual community event.
