Outpatient Diagnostic Imaging Center
The Providence Little Company of Mary Outpatient Diagnostic Imaging Center opened in December 2018. The addition of this new, convenient facility means the imaging center at the hospital can better accommodate the needs of inpatients and emergency room patients. The new imaging center offers every type of diagnostic imaging available: PET, CT, MRI, fluoroscopy and X-ray. While appointments are recommended, if you have an order for imaging, you can walk in and staff will work to accommodate you.

Pacific Neuroscience Institute
Pacific Neuroscience Institute (PNI), the prestigious medical group from Santa Monica, opened its South Bay center on July 8, bringing dedicated neuroscience specialists to the South Bay. The institute’s South Bay center includes neurology, neurosurgery and neuro-interventional radiology. Other services include neuro-oncology and neuro-otology. Providence Little Company of Mary Torrance is designated as a Comprehensive Stroke Center. The expertise of the PNI physicians was instrumental in helping us achieve this status and elevate stroke care at our medical center to the highest level. Later this year, PNI will open a research arm in its ACC offices as well as offer clinical-trial enrollment opportunities.

Coastal Ortho is a group of eight physicians unique in their ability to offer a comprehensive range of orthopedic subspecialties, including hand, joint, spine, foot, ankle and lower extremities, elbow, shoulder and upper extremities, as well as trauma.
The ACC will be home to a new surgery center next year.
