Los Alamitos Medical Center is a great place to work - just ask one of the more than 150 staff members who have been here over 20 years. The employees are dedicated not only to their patients, but to the hospital. It has a family feel and itâ��s not unusual for second and third generations of family members to all work here. There are second generations of physicians at the hospital as well. A specific nursing position opened up recently for the first time in 43 years â�� only to have the employee return part time to her position. Staff retention is a source of pride and it reflects on the level of commitment staff brings to each patient.
