If you have a medical emergency, please call 9-1-1.

Thank you for the privilege to serve you and your family throughout the years at Community Medical Center Long Beach.

Due to an active earthquake fault line under the hospital and California’s impending seismic regulations for acute care hospitals, Community Medical Center Long Beach closed on July 3, 2018.

Long Beach Medical Center and Miller Children's & Women's Hospital Long Beach will continue to serve Long Beach and surrounding communities by providing accessible, high quality health care services at our numerous locations that include physician health centers, ambulatory surgery centers, urgent care centers, breast centers, imaging centers and other programs and services.


A medical emergency is an event that you believe needs immediate medical care to prevent death or serious impairment of health, including severe pain, bad injury, serious illness, or medical condition that is quickly getting worse. If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” call 911 immediately:

  • Is the condition life or limb threatening?
  • Might the condition worsen en route to the hospital?
  • If you move the victim, will it cause further injury?
  • Does the person need paramedic skills or equipment?
  • Will traffic or distance delay getting to the hospital?

It’s important to know that for certain conditions, such as heart attack or stroke, it is essential to call 911 because paramedics can deliver life-saving care en route to the hospital. Visit for more information.
