Long Beach Medical Center

From routine family health care, to emergency services and extensive rehabilitation facilities, to today's advanced medical procedures, Long Beach Medical Center (LBMC) has been a critical resource for the Long Island communities of Long Beach, Lido Beach, Atlantic Beach, Point Lookout and Island Park for almost eight decades.The hospital's roots lay in the founding of a beachside first aid station in 1922. Today, LBMC includes a 162-bed community teaching hospital, a 200-bed sub-acute and skilled nursing facility (The Komanoff Center for Geriatric and Rehabilitative Medicine), a Medicare-certified home health agency and numerous outpatient services.

While it serves the area's routine health care needs, LBMC is additionally a center for advanced medical procedures, assuring community residents that they will have access to cutting edge treatment right at their hometown hospital. Through a collaborative venture with the Center for Molecular Medicine, LBMC now offers a revolutionary treatment for lethal brain tumors. Other unique services include EECP (enhanced external counter pulsation), an innovative, non-invasive technique to reduce the symptoms of angina, and The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center, for the treatment of problem wounds.


LBMC's Family Care Center provides primary and specialty medical care for people with limited financial resources. Physician specialists in family practice, pediatrics, obstetrics, gynecology, cardiology, general surgery and many other specialties staff the Medical Center. The Medical Center has an extensive physical rehabilitation program, including a 15-bed inpatient unit and numerous outpatient services. LBMC's behavioral health services include a 25-bed inpatient psychiatric unit, inpatient medical detoxification, and outpatient services for the treatment of alcoholism, substance abuse and mental health problems.

LBMC's commitment to the community is reflected in the hospital's numerous health screenings, support groups and education programs. Offered throughout the year, these programs educate the community about important health issues and provide screenings for such conditions as alcoholism, cancer and depression.

From its humble beginnings, today's Medical Center has evolved into a sophisticated community teaching hospital with teaching affiliations with the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine and the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. Yet, it has never strayed from its mission of healing and its commitment to cater to the individual needs of its patients and its community.
