A New Generation of Support
Torrance Memorial Young Physicians and Professionals Alliance (YPPA) was
established in 2012 to engage members of the South Bay community. This
exclusive group is designed to bring together young physicians and successful
professionals in the South Bay community to engage in dynamic social gatherings
that allow for personal and professional networking while increasing awareness
of and support for Torrance Memorial.
Young Physicians and Professionals Alliance’s mission is to bring
physician and community leaders together in support of Torrance Memorial
and the community's health.
- Support Torrance Memorial Medical Center
- Invitations to special events at cool South Bay venues including our beer

To more directly impact patient care, in 2015, YPPA proudly launched its
support for two awards that recognize Torrance Memorial employees who
go above and beyond to make a difference with our patients and visitors.
The DAISY AWARD recognizes Registered Nurses who demonstrate excellence
through their clinical expertise and extraordinary, compassionate care.
The Reason is You Recognition honors extraordinary persons in any job classification
who have created a remarkable customer experience through their compassionate
communication, behavior or teamwork.
The YPPA is led by a volunteer committee comprised of enthusiastic young
professionals interested not only in Torrance Memorial but also in creating
events and partnerships which educate and empower people to make a positive
contribution to the community.
