Sandra Shells Memorial Fund


Join the LAC+USC Medical Center Foundation in honoring our Hospital Hero, Sandra Shells, an ER nurse who dedicated 38 years to LAC+USC Medical Center. Ms. Shells will forever be remembered for her compassionate care and unmatched dedication to her patients and her community.

In her honor, the LAC+USC Medical Center Foundation has established the Sandra Shells Memorial Fund to help her family during this difficult time and assist other families affected by, or have fallen victim to, violence.
