“Whenever our family has been admitted at Long Beach Medical Center, we always felt that we had access to the latest in technology and the finest physicians, along with a compassionate and efficient nursing team,” stated Marlene Temple, President, Don Temple Family Charitable Foundation Board. “We feel privileged to support the efforts of the MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute in advancing cardiovascular care, especially with the latest advances with minimally invasive surgery techniques.”
Since the beginning, our clinical teams, support teams and physicians have worked tirelessly with purpose and passion to care for the thousands of COVID-19 patients that have come through our doors. These are the stories of frontline workers at MemorialCare who stood together to serve the community they love.
Raquel was recently discharged from Long Beach Medical Center after spending five weeks battling COVID-19. After she recovered, Raquel spent two more weeks in the rehabilitation unit to regain mobility, strength, and endurance she lost during her illness. While our MemorialCare staff at Long Beach Medical Center cheered for Raquel as she exited the building, she proudly announced,“I beat the rona’!”
