Our Goal: Expansion
To better serve the needs of our community and accommodate our growing patient volume, it is imperative we take action by expanding the Emergency Department as a whole. In addition to serving new patients, it is our mission to ensure members of the community have continued access to the advanced care and services they have grown to trust at Torrance Memorial Medical Center.
Currently located on the first floor of the East Wing, we plan to make significant renovations and extend the Emergency Department to also occupy the second floor, which formerly housed the Intensive Care Unit. This $50 million expansion will break ground in late 2024 and take approximately five years to complete.
The remodeled Emergency Department will include:
- More than 80 treatment spaces
- Rooms with glass walls for better privacy and security
- New elevators
- New consultation spaces
- Special behavioral health rooms
- Various designated specialty spaces
- Noise reduction enhancements
Your contribution will save lives
Your donation in any amount will significantly expand the scope of care at our Emergency Department when minutes matter most. It will allow us to treat more patients who require life-saving treatment during some of the most critical moments in their lives.
Your immeasurable impact will be felt for years to come in the South Bay community.
