Access to Promising Clinical Trials

Exploring Future Opportunities

Looking ahead, both institutions plan to enhance the cancer care collaboration through joint physician recruitments, additional clinical trials, expanded services and hours, and new technology.

"It’s been three years, and we are continuing to explore further synergies," Figlin said. "Healthcare is a team sport."

The team is hoping to expand availability to head and neck cancer care in the South Bay, allowing treatment for these complex cancers to be jointly delivered at Cedars-Sinai and Torrance Memorial.

"We know technology can't replace a personal touch—how you’re being cared for," Figlin said. "No matter what our patients are about to face, Torrance Memorial and Cedars-Sinai can handle it."
