Spotlight on the hill – Hunt Cancer Center groundbreaking
Family and friends of Donald and Priscilla Hunt, Torrance Memorial/Foundation/Auxiliary board members, major donors, medical staff, cancer survivors, dignitaries and construction representatives gathered to celebrate the Hunt Cancer Center groundbreaking on June 20 on the Torrance Memorial medical center campus. The 37,000-square-foot facility will consolidate and strengthen cancer care in the South Bay. The center is named after the late Donald Hunt, founder of South Bay-based Hunt Enterprises, and his wife Priscilla. The Hunt family has pledged $34 million to Torrance Memorial, the second largest family gift in the more than 90-year history of the medical center. Hunt Cancer Center patients will benefit from Torrance Memorial’s recent affiliation with Cedars-Sinai through access to new and innovative clinical trials and a team of sub-specialists who treat more than 60 types of cancer, from common to rare to complex. Completion is scheduled for June of 2019.
