Nursing home reopened; counseling center relocated.
More than three months after shuttering due to extensive hurricane damage, the Long Beach Medical Center is again offering some social services.
The Komanoff Center for Geriatric and Rehabilitative Medicine, housed at the Medical Center is now reopened and the Counseling Center is now housed at a temporary location. The Medical Center, however, remains closed.
On Jan. 30, the Long Beach Medical Center's hurricane informational Facebook page
states, "approximately 175 Komanoff Center staff
members offered a warm welcome to 70 former residents as they moved back
home from their temporary residences, where they had been staying since
the Hurricane Sandy evacuation."
The day before
the storm, staff evacuated
182 residents to 11 facilities. Now, both are finally able to return.
The New York State Office of Mental Health approved the reopening of LBMC's
Counseling Center, which began seeing clients earlier this week.
Hours of operation for the Counseling Center are: Mon, Tue, Wed: 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Thu: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Fri: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sat: 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Location: 950 Church St. in Baldwin (415-7210).RELATEDLB Medical Center Targeting Mid-March ReopeningCity Presses for Hospital RestorationSandy Displaced Support Group to Meet at Mercy Medical CenterMobile Primary Care Facility Replaces Satellite Emergency Unit at LBMC
