Take me to Little Company of Mary

As the first Comprehensive Stroke Center in the South Bay, Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance has put together an unbeatable team to save patients. Read this heart-warming story about the first patient to be taken to LCM after a change in paramedic routing protocol. Any patients with suspected large vessel occlusions must now be taken directly to a stroke center with 
clot removal capabilities rather than primary stroke centers.

Dr. Walavan Sivakumar, director of neurosurgery at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical talks about the one of a kind Pacific Neuroscience Institute clinic. The center offers comprehensive services for treating a wide spectrum of neurological and cranial disorders. Check out this great and informative interview with NEWSBREAK Live.
