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).
