Torrance Memorial Medical Center receives $32M donation

Torrance (Calif.) Memorial Medical Center received a $32 million gift from Melanie and Richard Lundquist to advance neurological, orthopedic and spinal care at the facility, according to the Los Angeles Times.

 

The donation will be used to improve stroke care and establish a neuroscience institute as well as an orthopedic and spine institute.

Once the new institutes are established, patients will no longer need to be referred elsewhere for neurological care, Torrance Memorial President and CEO Craig Leach, told the LA Times.

The $32 million gift is the second largest gift to any healthcare organization thus far in 2017, according to the LA Times report, which cited the Chronicle of Philanthropy.
