The City of Torrance welcomes a top ranked cancer care facility to the region.

This week, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the new City of Hope, South Bay facility. The state-of-the-art center is 25,000 square feet and occupies two floors of a newly constructed medical office building owned by Providence Little Company of Mary. Together the facilities will collaborate to advance cancer care by working in alignment to bring the latest diagnostics, treatments and clinical trials.

The facility offers top notch surgical, radiation and medical oncology with 20 exam rooms, infusion areas for chemotherapy patients and three procedure rooms. The cancer center will also have a “Positive Image center” which provides a safe reassuring space for patients to learn how to minimize the cosmetics side effects of treatment through consultations with oncology-trained licensed cosmetologists. This is the first Positive image center outside of its main campus in Duarte.

City of Hope was recently listed as one of the nation’s best hospitals for cancer for the 12th consecutive year by US News and World report.

City of Hope continues to expand with 30 locations throughout southern California. Its newest center can be found at 5215 Torrance Boulevard at the intersection of Torrance and Palos Verdes boulevards.
