Comprehensive Stroke Center
We have the ability to treat even the most complex stroke cases, providing 24/7 access to neurology, neurosurgery, neurointerventional radiology, and neurocritical care. Our certification by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center means we follow the best practices for stroke care and provide integrated services in stroke diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation.

Not all facilities are qualified to treat illnesses or injuries in children. Our Emergency Department is approved to provide specialized pediatric care. In fact, our Emergency Department is specially designated by Los Angeles County as an Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP). This means the hospital has adhered to strict EDAP requirements for policies, procedures, and protocols; administration/coordination; personnel; quality improvement; support services; and equipment, supplies, and medications.
As a Disaster Resource Center for 10 area hospitals throughout Long Beach and surrounding communities, as well as being the region’s Paramedic Base Station, responsible for coordinating paramedic calls for the city's hospitals, our Emergency Department is particularly experienced in dealing with trauma, accidents, and disasters.
For non-life-threatening emergencies, our convenient “InQuicker” online waiting service app allows patients to select an estimated hospital arrival time so you can wait more comfortably wherever you are until it is time to be seen.
The service should not be used for life-threatening emergencies or children under the age of three. Call 911 immediately for these serious situations.
