Pediatric Emergency Services

The Torrance Memorial Emergency Department is our frontline for pediatric emergencies. All of our Emergency Department nurses are specially trained in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and are able to stabilize and transport our pediatric patients if necessary.

Pediatric Burn Center

Torrance Memorial offers one of only three Burn Centers in Los Angeles County who care for critically burned children, many of whom are on respirators. The Burn Center's Total Care teams include a physical therapist, occupational therapist and social worker that attend to these patients. Working in conjunction with the hospital's Child Life Specialist, staff members in the Burn Center not only provide medical care, but also provide burn prevention education for parents and family members.
