Bakersfield Memorial Hospital has undergone a vast transformation since its opening in 1956. Once a small community hospital, BMH is now a regional medical center offering nationally-recognized departments... more and services. We're especially proud of our cardiovascular program, the Family Care Center, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and our surgical services in orthopedics, neurosurgery and general surgery. Today, our 426-bed facility serves patients throughout Kern County and beyond.
I can't say enough about the level of care we received when my granddaughter contracted Meningitis. She is 11 years old and to say it was scary was an understatement! Not only did she receive the best... more care from Drs Winn and Karney but also the nursing staff, emergency staff, and security personnel. Our wholehearted thanks go out to everyone involved. My granddaughter is on the mend, we are much better educated, and grateful to have hospital staff of this caliber here in Bakersfield.
I know the emergency room is not supposed to be a great experience but the people that work here try their hardest to make it a better experience and it was appreciated. The staff were nice, attentive... more and helpful.
