Torrance Memorial Care Coordination Center

Why should I go to the Post-Hospital Follow-Up Appointment at the Torrance Memorial Care Coordination Center after I am discharged from the hospital?

Discharge time may be hectic. Information important to your recovery is given when you are discharged from the Emergency Department, Hospital, or Skilled Nursing Facility, but you may have questions when you get home. Studies have shown that people do not remember all the instructions given to them during this time and this can affect the recovery process.

"The doctor was very informative and explained everything in a dear manner. She was so helpful and this office is a great resource. Very beneficial as a follow up appointment." - A pleased visitor

How is the Torrance Memorial Care Coordination Center going to help me?

The Comprehensive Care Center will provide a less hurried environment in which your discharge instructions will be reviewed again by a doctor or nurse practitioner that is committed to your recovery. By coming into the center, you and your family will have ample time with the doctor or nurse practitioner who will go over your discharge instructions, your medical condition, test results, medication list, follow-up plans, and answer any questions you may have.

"The most valuable 45 minutes I've spent since discharge." - A pleased visitor
