Pediatrics

Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance has a highly trained, caring pediatric department committed to providing the highest level of quality care for children and adolescents. The unit contains age-appropriate medical equipment and staffing by nurses and medical personnel specially trained to meet the needs of children.

We understand that any hospitalization is stressful for the family - but even more when a child is hospitalized. Our staff will do their best to ensure your child's comfort and safety as well as provide support for your family.

We encourage family members to participate in the care of their child to the extent that they wish. We welcome parents' help with such everyday activities as bathing and feeding. Young children are often more comfortable with a parent giving this type of care. We also invite parents to bring familiar items from home, such as your child's clothes, favorite blankets or toys, to help your child feel more comfortable during the healing process.
