For the fourth year in a row, MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center has achieved a ranking on Newsweek's list of World's Best Hospitals 2022. Long Beach Medical Center ranked No. 94 on the 2022 list out of more than 400 hospitals in the United States and No. 11 out of more than 30 California hospitals.
The award honors hospitals that are at the forefront of adapting to new challenges and providing high-quality patient care. This recognition attests to the innovative treatments and care that the teams at Long Beach Medical Center provide to Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

- Patient experience: surveys measuring patient satisfaction with hospitals.
- Medical key performance indicators: patient safety, hygiene measures, and quality of treatment.
