PATRONS | Sring 2017 30 IN YOUR COMMUNITY Physicians and donors gathered to celebrate the opening of Torrance Memo- rial Medical Center's newly renovated Mother/Baby Postpartum Unit on October 13. Guests toured the unit and participated in raffle drawings for diaper cakes and plush animals. Torrance Memorial's Young Physicians and Professionals Alliance (YPPA) presented a $15,000 donation. Food and beverage for the event were underwritten by PDM LLP. The new, all-private patient rooms are 33% larger, offering more space for moms to "room in" with their new babies to facilitate bonding. The unit's opening is phase one of a $33 million renovation. Once completed, the North Wing will also feature new Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Units.
