Date:5/28/2013

Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2013

American Career College (ACC), a leader in the health care education field, has opened the doors to its fourth campus in southern California. On April 25, 2013, ACC unveiled its new facilities, welcoming dignitaries, students and the general public to an evening filled with camaraderie, charity and goodwill.

Robert Garcia, Vice Mayor of Long Beach, extended a warm welcome to the school and its students: "It’s great to welcome a new educational partner to our city. We look forward to working together to ensure that all students receive a quality education."

Other notable attendees included CEO David Pyle, who remains committed to integrating American Career College into the communities it serves, not only by offering higher education, but also by sponsoring philanthropic organizations such as KidWorks and the Ronald McDonald House. School President Thomas McNamara and Campus Dean Irma Blanco were also on-hand to present the first student enrolled at ACC's Long Beach Campus, David Rodriguez, with a #1 student jersey and full tuition scholarship for the Medical Assistant program.

McNamara, addressing the role he expects the school to play within the Long Beach community, remarked, "The students who typically come to career colleges have various levels of educational experience. Our job is to work with each of those students, on an individual basis, to develop a road map for them to become successful."

Area health care organizations were also well represented at the festivities. The guest list included representatives from the following organizations: Providence Little Company, Integrated Management & Diagnostic Services, The Atticus Group, Riverside County Workforce Investment Board, Pacific Alliance Medical Center, and Los Alamitos Medical Center.

About the Long Beach Campus

Located in the heart of downtown Long Beach, which features unique restaurants and popular attractions such as the Pike Mall, the Aquarium of the Pacific and the Queen Mary, ACC's new facilities boast a rich architectural history. The building was constructed in the 1930s and was known to locals as the Arts Building. ACC embraced the idea of maintaining the Art Deco integrity of the structure and preserving the historical culture of the Long Beach Community. The 18,879 square foot building now contains classrooms, labs and administrative areas.

In addition to the reception area, the first floor of the historic structure contains ACC departments of Admissions and Financial Aid as well as an Optical Dispensing lab, a Dental Assisting lab and the student break room.

The lower level houses the Medical Billing and Coding lab, the Medical Assistant labs, lecture classrooms, faculty and administrative offices and break rooms. The Student Resource Center can also be found here, including the library, Registrar's office, an entrance testing room and the office of Career Services.

ACC facilities also boast modern, relevant equipment, such as SMART technologies meant to support faculty instruction and student interaction. There will be several computers in the library to support individual study and a meeting room for faculty/student meetings or group study. The warm ACC color scheme can be seen throughout the building, inviting new students in and making current students feel right at home.
