“From screening through diagnosis and treatment into survivorship,
we are fully dedicated to the principle of complete, personalized care
for people with cancer and their loved ones.”

Torrance Memorial opened its doors in 1925 to provide quality health care
services predominantly to the residents of the South Bay. No longer just
a hospital, today Torrance Memorial—a Cedars-Sinai affiliate—includes
an extensive system of physicians and comprehensive services to provide
outstanding medical care.
The hospital consistently receives top-quality ratings from leading health
organizations for their commitment to quality, safety and putting patients
first. In 2019 two national hospital studies in
U.S. News & World Report recognized Torrance Memorial as the top ranked hospital in the South Bay.
This December Torrance Memorial will expand its comprehensive cancer program
with the opening of the Hunt Cancer Center. Torrance Memorial’s
Hunt Cancer Institute has a long, successful history of caring for cancer
patients and their families, and soon the Hunt Cancer Center will provide
a patient-centered environment to meet the needs of oncology patients
all in one place.
A team of surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and nurse navigators
will work collaboratively to fight cancer with new treatments and diagnostics,
including genetic counseling, infusion center and clinical research. Its
increased space will allow more room for families to visit, and new features
will enhance the patient experience during treatment.
What really makes Torrance Memorial shine as the Face of Cancer Care in
the South Bay is its affiliation with Cedars-Sinai. Now in its second
year, this alliance continues to bring expertise, new technologies, medical
research, clinical trials and innovative treatments to southern California.
Providing highly skilled care with compassionate support and services throughout
the journey of cancer treatment and beyond is just one way Torrance Memorial
continues to expand access to the most advanced medical care—right
here in our community.
