Welcome to Long Beach Medical Center. Visits from family and friends are important to a patient’s healing process. At Long Beach Medical Center, we use a Patient and Family-Centered Care Visiting Model, meaning visitors and family are a welcomed part of individualized patient treatment.
Partner in Care
We welcome a partner in care - a support individual of the patient’s choice that may be present during the course of the hospital stay. The visiting plan is dynamic and will change based on the fluctuating needs of the patient, family, health care team and department. Our professional care teams and staff members use discretion and compassion in their determination to make necessary exceptions. Families, partners in care and friends are welcome to visit.
Please check-in at the Information Center for a visitor pass, and wear your pass visibly at all times. Check with the unit you are visiting for additional guidelines. Most visiting hours end at 9 p.m. There are circumstances when families and visitors may be asked to honor restricted visiting, such as when a patient is immunosuppressed or during the virus season where families and visitors are exhibiting signs or symptoms of illness, cough, rash or other respiratory illnesses.
The care teams at Long Beach Medical Center are committed to providing peace of mind to friends and family through our safety first, visitor check-in process.
To ensure a safe environment, we have special security measures in place:
1. All visitors must check-in at the lobby to obtain a visitor’s badge.
2. All visitors (18+) must provide a valid government-issued photo ID at check-in.
3. Visitors are screened against the Megan’s Law Registry. If a match is found, a Public Safety Officer will be notified.
4. Visitor badges must be visible at all times.
