Community Hospital Emergency Room Opens

Release Date: 2021-05-12

Today was an incredible day as we reopened the emergency department at Community Hospital for the first time in three years. Community Hospital began taking walk-in and transfer patients as of today at noon — and this is just the beginning. We expect in the next few weeks, the hospital may begin to accept patients who are transported by ambulance.

A huge thank you to all those involved in getting Community Hospital reopened, especially Councilman Supernaw, the Community Health Long Beach Foundation, and the MWN healthcare group. To the doctors, medical team and nursing staff, we appreciate your work tremendously.

The newly reopened emergency department at Community Hospital has 20 beds, new medical equipment, upgraded electronic patient tracking, a refurbished exterior facade, and a redesigned and updated lobby area.

With this opening, Long Beach is building a safer and even healthier city.

Thank you and Go Long Beach,

Mayor Robert Garcia
