College Medical Center, formerly Pacific Hospital of Long Beach, is a community-based teaching hospital located in Long Beach, California. It is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. The hospital was purchased by healthcare management company, College Health Enterprises, Inc., a Santa Fe Springs-based healthcare management company, in October 2013 and was renamed College Medical Center. This purchase joined the hospital with College Hospital Cerritos and College Hospital Costa Mesa as affiliates of College Health Enterprises.[1]

Since implementing infection control measures, the hospital has nearly eliminated methicillin resistant strains of staphylococcus (MRSA). Measures include an air ventilation system that uses ultraviolet light to kill germs, more time for maintenance staff to clean rooms, and more frequent hand washing by staff members.[2][3]

Residency program

College Medical Center operates residency programs in family medicine, internal medicine, and traditional rotating internships.[4][5][6][7] The residencies are currently accredited by the American Osteopathic Association until 2020. With the ACGME and AOA merger of graduate medical education for MD and DO residencies, the hospital will cease the family medicine residency beyond 2020 due to accreditation conflicts between the two governing bodies; it will continue to operate the internal medicine residency and traditional rotating internship which have gained initial accreditation to continue as programs for graduate medical education.
