Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, Patient Care Assistant Training

Thanks to funding from the American Recover and Reinvestment Act, the Pacific Gateway Workforce Investment Network partnered with Long Beach Memorial Medical Center to design, develop and implement a customized training program for Patient Care Assistants.

This program, which will train 50 unemployed adults, is focused on patient care clinical skills and customer service skills. Each participant will complete 240 hours of classroom and clinical training specifically geared for LBMMC’s level of care for medical or surgical patients. December 2009
