Newsweek IconFor the fourth year in a row, MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center has achieved a ranking on Newsweek’s list of World’s Best Hospitals 2022. Long Beach Medical Center ranked No. 94 on the 2022 list out of more than 400 hospitals in the United States and No. 11 out of more than 30 California hospitals.

This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. This award honors hospitals that are at the forefront of adapting to new challenges and providing high-quality patient care. This recognition attests to the innovative treatments and care that the teams at Long Beach Medical Center provide to Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

“This global distinction reflects the fact that you don’t need to travel far distances or go to academic institutions to receive the best options for care in our community,” says Ike Mmeje, chief operating officer, Long Beach Medical Center. “We’ve always prided ourselves in reinvesting in our community to ensure we bring the most advanced and compassionate care out there. The fact that we achieved that while battling COVID-19 for a second year is a testament to the dedication and resolve of our physicians, nurses and ancillary staff.”

Newsweek and Statista developed a complex methodology to ensure the quality and validity of the ranking. Three data sources were used for the evaluation:

  • Hospital recommendations from peers: an international online survey that included more than 80,000 doctors, hospital managers and health care professionals.
  • Patient experience: surveys measuring patient satisfaction with hospitals.
  • Medical key performance indicators (KPIs): patient safety, hygiene measures, and quality of treatment.
