About Long Beach Medical Center and the communities we serve...
Long Beach Medical Center is a community-based teaching facility, offering a high quality/soft touch approach that has led to our reputation of compassionate care - a hallmark we are proud to have earned.
Located on a magnificent barrier beach island, the Medical Center has more than three miles of white, sandy beach within walking distance. Patient rooms face the beautiful Reynolds Channel, offering one of the most serene and therapeutic settings of any hospital in our region.
Close at hand are a host of activities including beaches, a boardwalk, boating, and fishing, as well as a community dedicated to activism and volunteerism. At the same time, New York City, a bustling capital of culture and commerce, is less than an hour away and easily accessible by train or car.
Long Beach Medical Center serves a year-round population of approximately 35,000 families, with an additional 10,000 families making their homes on the island during the summer months.
