Is car the only way to get to duarte from long beach area. Is there any light rail or public transportation. I am a nurse in Ontario, Canada and I know Duarte has a Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. I am looking to relocate to California. I was interested in Long Beach because they have a decent public transporation system. Does Long Beach have a Bone Marrow Transplant Unit for Adults within any of the hospitals. I can't find anything on the web. I know there is a pediatrics unit.
"Decent"? Long Beach has, at best, an adequate public transportation system. A car is really a necessity in southern California. You can get by without one, but the public transportaion here is not like major cities elsewhere in the US and Canada. You can waste a lot of time here trying get around on public transportation. Find the best job, then get a car. I'd recommend also checking San Diego. It is home to a large number of hospitals.
