As a new physician I decided to practice at St. Mary because of the medical center's outstanding commitment to providing excellent health care to the Long Beach community. I wanted to be part of that commitment. St. Mary truly shows how much they care for their patients with the quality services they provide and their outreach which goes beyond the walls of the hospital. The highly-skilled physicians and staff care about their patients, which contributes to their well-being.
Another reason I came to St. Mary is because the hospital is a teaching facility, which allowed me to benefit from learning from some of the brightest and best physicians from the UCLA School of Medicine.
One of the most rewarding aspects of practicing at St. Mary is the people I work with. The staff at St. Mary really strive to be his or her best. I love providing care to my patients, but also enjoy interacting with my colleagues who share the same dedication to their patients and to the hospital.
If you are considering practicing at St. Mary, though you will be challenged, you will have the opportunity to pursue excellence in health care and to make a difference in our community.
