Making a Difference

Thank You for Your Support

Because of your support, MemorialCare continues to save and enrich the lives of thousands.

Since 1961, we have been a trusted partner with those in our community to ensure that excellence in health care is available close to home. We do this by supporting patient programs, clinical research, education, medical equipment and capital expansion at Long Beach Medical Center and Miller Children's & Women’s Hospital Long Beach.

Memorial Medical Center Foundation has partnered with hundreds of donors and organizations to raise the funds necessary to provide "that extra measure of care" to those seeking care on our campus. We are able to provide this support through the stewardship of your philanthropic dollars. We invite you to join us to make a difference in the health of our community.

Thank you for being part of the healing.
