Working With Our Community to Enhance Health
Long Beach Medical Center seeks to improve the health and quality of the lives of the residents we serve. Through partnerships with individuals, businesses and community organizations, we are working together to achieve these goals.

Coalition to Prevent Falls/Safe Steps of Long Beach
The Safe Steps of Long Beach Fall Prevention Coalition was formed by Long Beach Medical Center in 2010 to raise awareness on the incidence of accidental falls and offer prevention strategies to minimize one’s risk of falling. With grant funding provided by TD Bank, the Medical Center formed a coalition of community organizations and collaboratively initiated a series of evidence-based programs that address this public health concern.
