THE STORY:

ST MARY MEDICAL CENTER FOUNDATION wrote -

Join us among the thousands of others in supporting the jetBlue Long Beach Marathon & Half Marathon through your charitable support for Dignity Health St. Mary Medical Center.


St. Mary is situated in a Long Beach neighborhood that is home to some of the city’s most vulnerable residents. The community knows St. Mary for its exceptional inpatient health care and Emergency Department. But also for comprehensive Community Clinics and Benefit Programs, which seek to provide the highest quality care while maintaining the dignity of each individual.


Your giving will impact lives! 

Area of Greatest Need provides the maximum flexibility and creates an immediate impact when and where the need is greatest. This fund has been used to purchase state-of-the-art; life-enhancing and life saving equipment to support the development and operations of the medical center and programs and projects that directly impact the community in ensuring the best possible care for our patients in Greater Long Beach.   


Emergency Department Expansion is the primary health care access point for our community is at the center of our hospital campus – our busy Emergency Department (ED). The ED volume has grown by an alarming 21% over the past five years. Last year, the ED treated 56,000 patients, despite being built to accommodate 35,000 visits annually.   The expansion features almost doubling the number of beds from 26 to 47. Further, the expansion will allow a complete reconfiguration of our services, including: Streamlined access with special internal waiting area for patients who have been admitted to the ED but don’t require immediate care; Decreased wait times and reduced crowding due to new and improved waiting area; Increased number of visits to 64,000 annually.


CARE Center supports people living with HIV and others directly impacted by the virus. CARE provides medical care, behavioral health services, food and nutrition, supportive services, oral healthcare, and prevention education to reduce the impact of HIV within Long Beach and beyond. CARE’s model of comprehensive services was one of the first of its kind and continues to serves as many as 1,600 people every year – regardless of their ability to pay – and has touched countless more in its 30 years of service.   


Low Vision Center identifies and treats vision deficiencies through complementary vision screenings, referrals to optometrists’ visits, and glasses, occupational therapy classes, Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) Loan Program, assistive devices and optical aids to community members of any age.   


Families in Good Health is a multilingual, multicultural health and social education program for the Southeast Asian, Latino and other communities in Long Beach. Its mission is to help the community make informed choices and gain access to needed health and social resources.   


NICU Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is in need of at least four new bili-lights to treat approximately 400 babies per year. Currently the department depends on older, oversized models that must be continually monitored and repositioned to ensure proper exposure benefits for the babies. Purchasing the newer model lights will provide more efficient care for our NICU babies. Each new bili-light costs $4,671.
