Living in California
Providence Health & Services serves a mosaic of cultures in diverse regions from the suburbs in the San Fernando Valley to the South Bay. Los Angeles is the most populous County in the nation, with more than 10 million residents, and continues to grow rapidly.
Los Angeles is home to some of the world's top health care and educational institutions, a diverse economy, a dominating arts and entertainment community and the widest imaginable range of recreational options for families. Those facets contribute to communities that are vibrant and a workforce that's inspired.
Two of our hospitals and our large employed physician group are located in the South Bay, and we have three major medical centers in the San Fernando Valley.
San Fernando Valley, home to more than 2 million people, is the sixth most populated "city" in the U.S., although it is officially part of Los Angeles. The Valley boasts a diverse economy, expanding workforce, dominating arts and entertainment community and easy access to the widest imaginable range of educational and recreational options.
San Pedro is a city of 73,000 located in the South Bay area of Los Angeles.
San Pedro is a historic fishing community that is now the home of the Port of Los
Angeles World Cruise Center, a major international cruise ship terminal. The ships
and the port itself are industrial engineering marvels. San Pedro also excels in
simpler arenas, offering fresh sea breezes, old fishing wharfs and great walking
Torrance, with a population of about 145,000, is the sixth largest city in
LA County. Located about 25 miles southwest of downtown LA, Torrance is a mixture
