Make a Difference

Message to prospective volunteers: We appreciate our community's support and interest in volunteering at Torrance Memorial as well as your patience while we had limited opportunities to join our program during the pandemic. We anticipate offering an adult volunteer orientation in August, 2021 and a High School application process in the fall.


For more than 70 years, Torrance Memorial volunteers have played an integral role in providing compassionate service to patients and visitors. Our volunteer program includes nearly 900 dedicated people who give of themselves to make Torrance Memorial a leader in providing health care to the broad South Bay community. With the opportunity to serve throughout the medical center as a volunteer, you will contribute to the patient experience by helping with big and small requests alike. A few examples: you might help patients and visitors find their way on campus, assist surgery patients and families, provide helpful information, or play the piano for the enjoyment of patients, visitors, and staff. You will be part of a team that is committed to helping others in a stimulating and collegial environment. Hospital volunteers interact not only with patients and families but with health care professionals, and administrative staff. Volunteer opportunities are also available beyond the hospital within Torrance Memorial Health System.
