City of Hope's new state-of-the-art cancer center opens in Torrance

August 27, 2018 | by Zen Vuong

City of Hope continues to expand its top-ranked cancer care across Southern California, opening its latest facility, City of Hope | South Bay, in the new Providence Advanced Care Center in Torrance. For the first time, South Bay residents will have access to both the facility's leading-edge, quality cancer care and innovative clinical trials. 
 
The 25,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art cancer center at 5215 Torrance Blvd. in Torrance occupies two floors of a newly constructed, three-story medical office building owned by Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Centers.
 
Harlan Levine, M.D., president of strategy and business ventures at City of Hope, said offering City of Hope’s best-in-class cancer care within Providence’s new Advanced Care Center in Torrance enables patients in the South Bay to receive the best possible care, which is at the core of the missions of both organizations.
 
“The nation faces a growing demand for oncology care at a time of increasing complexity of treatment, increased demand and rising costs,” Levine said. “City of Hope brings new, research-driven treatment options to the South Bay. We want to ensure patients have the premier care they deserve and still be close to home.”
 
At City of Hope | South Bay, patients will have access to top-notch surgical, radiation and medical oncology, with 20 exam rooms and infusion areas for chemotherapy patients, as well as three procedure rooms. Additionally, South Bay patients will soon have access to City of Hope’s clinical trials.
 
The cancer center also will include a “Positive Image CenterSM,” the first one City of Hope is offering outside of its main campus in Duarte. The Positive Image Center provides a safe, reassuring space for patients to learn how to minimize the cosmetic side effects of treatment via consultations with oncology-trained, licensed cosmetologists.
 
Garry Olney, interim chief executive of Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Centers, said Providence is dedicated to quality and compassionate care. “Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center is proud to collaborate with City of Hope in advancing cancer care by working in alignment to bring the latest diagnostics, treatments and clinical trials to the new ambulatory care center in Torrance. The opening of the City of Hope cancer center signifies a pivotal development in health care services for our South Bay communities as our two organizations work to improve patient outcomes.”
