Torrance Memorial Affiliation

Torrance Memorial's affiliation with Cedars-Sinai gives South Bay residents convenient local access to the added expertise of Cedars-Sinai specialists. The Cedars-Sinai faculty physicians provide services as needed at Torrance Memorial, working with their outstanding physicians. The affiliation helps meet the growing demand for quality healthcare closer to where Southern Californians work and live.

The Cedars-Sinai specialists—in areas such as cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, cardiology and thoracic surgery—are on-site at selected Torrance outpatient locations and are also available as needed in Torrance Memorial Medical Center for specialized in-hospital procedures. 

South Bay residents also have expanded access to clinical trials of promising new cancer treatments, and can receive these at Torrance Memorial facilities, as Torrance Memorial cancer specialists are now part of Cedars-Sinai's extensive cancer clinical trials program.  

The affiliation enables each institution to continue to fulfill its mission and maintain the unique relationships each has with the communities it serves, while providing a wide variety of collaborations to better serve the region.

Most Torrance Memorial patients' insurance also covers Cedars-Sinai physician consults. Torrance Memorial and Cedars-Sinai are committed to providing patients with information up-front about their insurance coverages, and to working with patients to navigate the complexities of their health insurance coverage.
