The following information has been prepared to introduce your rights and responsibilities as a patient, the critical role of safety during your stay, and the many services available at Torrance Memorial Medical Center. We believe the most effective patient care begins when you establish partnerships with your hospital physician, your primary nurse and other members of your health care team.

We encourage you to be informed about your treatment and to participate in your care. Our staff welcomes your questions and will explain any aspect of your care that you do not understand.
