Vision and Mission
At THIPA, we pride ourselves in delivering a level of personal care to our members that other IPAs just can't deliver. It is our goal to provide the same dedication and concern to our members as we would our friends and family.
We understand that being sick, or having a loved one who is sick, can be one of the most stressful times in one's life. We believe in the individual's right to be well informed about the condition, treatment options as well as outcomes. After all, it is the individual's right to make their own health care decisions. We value good communication between providers, their patients as well as their colleagues. We are committed to practicing the most modern and beneficial medicine, while not loosing focus of the word "care" in healthcare.
The varied educational and experiential backgrounds of the Torrance Hospital IPA leadership, ranging from medicine over public health to management, allow a broad and comprehensive approach to the medical care for our members. We have not lost touch with the real issues in the practice of medicine, as President Dr. Panitch and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Joshi continue to actively practice medicine.
From the Executive staff we thank you for making Torrance Hospital IPA (THIPA) your medical service provider.
