Novas, a volunteer program for high school students offered through Torrance Memorial Medical Center, celebrates fourteen high school seniors who have served over 3,800 hours throughout their four years. Beginning in the 9th grade, students work throughout the year supporting the medical center by volunteering their time and talents within the Healthcare Foundation, Auxiliary, and Home Health and Hospice departments. Novas also volunteer in Escort Services as Blue Jackets assisting hospital personnel with deliveries and patient discharges.
