San Joaquin Community Hospital's (SJCH) mission is to share God's love with our community by providing physical, mental and spiritual healing. It is a big responsibility, and one that is enthusiastically embraced by our caregivers, staff members, physicians, our organizational leadership and our Boards. Our vision is to be the hospital of choice for our community by being the best place to receive care, practice medicine and work.
As the premier provider of healthcare services in Bakersfield and the surrounding cities of Kern County, SJCH now operates the hospital, a home health agency, the Wellness Center for diabetes education, Bariatric Solutions - a weight-loss center, the Grossman Burn Center at SJCH and Aera Burn Care Outpatient Clinic, and currently building the first and only hospital-based comprehensive cancer center in Kern County.
It has been said that continuity gives us roots, but change gives us branches, allowing us to stretch and grow and reach new heights. It's a philosophy exemplified in the past, present and future of San Joaquin Community Hospital, where the medical needs of Bakersfield residents have been met for over a century.
