Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance has received a $20 million donation from philanthropists Priscilla Hunt and the late Donald G. Hunt, the hospital said last week.
It is the largest donation ever given to the Catholic not-for-profit hospital and will be used to support Little Company of Mary’s Cardiovascular Center of Excellence Campaign, according to a press release.
“This extraordinary gift to Providence Little Company of Mary is an inspiring demonstration of how donors throughout the years have transformed this hospital through their generosity,” Sean Armstrong, the hospital’s chairman, said in a statement. “The Hunts believe that everyone in our community deserves access to the highest quality health care, and this generous gift ensures that South Bay residents will continue to receive world-class cardiovascular care right here in the community.”
The Cardiovascular Center of Excellence Campaign is investing in a $35 million renovation and new patient care rooms. The hospital’s Heritage Tower will be renamed the Donald & Priscilla Hunt Tower as a result of the gift, Little Company of Mary said.
