    On April 16th, Torgenson Law was invited to take a corporate tour at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Silvia Capir and Tim Harrison of the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation escorted John Torgenson, Dan DiLizia, and Valerie Ramirez throughout the hospital. They toured various areas of the hospitals, spoke with staff, and learned about what it takes to maintain the hospital. They also learned about the goals the hospital has in the near future such as a new Emergency Department and a Level 1 Trauma Center. Simply put, the hospital is nothing short of amazing, and it would be difficult to explain all the ways that it impacts our community’s children and their families.
