About the Facility:

San Joaquin Community Hospital (SJCH) is a 254-bed acute-care facility serving the city of Bakersfield and outlying communities of Kern County. Key services include cardiology, diabetes and wellness education, home health, imaging services, inpatient and outpatient burn care, maternity services, mobile immunizations, neurology, orthopedics, surgical and non-surgical weight loss, stroke treatment and 24-hour emergency services.

In May of 2011, SJCH began construction on a 60,000-square-foot Cancer Center and outpatient surgery center. The center will be ready to accept patients at the start of 2013. The Chest Pain Center at SJCH was a recipient of the American College of Cardiology’s “Get with the Guidelines” Silver Performance Achievement Award—one of only 94 Chest Pain Centers nationwide to receive this award.

In 2011, SJCH had 20,815 admissions, 2,652 deliveries, 62,640 ER visits, 76,644 outpatient visits and 16,507 home care visits. The hospital is staffed by 520 affiliated physicians, 2,066 employees and 280 volunteers. Also in 2011, the hospital contributed over $14.4 million in free and low-cost services to the community.

About the Community:

Choose to work and live in the Southern San Joaquin Valley...where you can ski at Mammoth one day and go to Santa Barbara the next. Drive to Disneyland in the morning and dine on the beach in the evening. Bakersfield is conveniently located within hours of many exciting and interesting leisure activities all year long.

The pleasures Kern County offers are endless. Several inviting lakes and a world-renowned river are ideal for active water sports or quiet contemplation. Miles of recreation trails attract bicycle enthusiasts and joggers, and wildlife habitats delight visitors young and old. A long list of annual events attracts every age and interest, from those who enjoy the thrill of rodeo to others who prefer a fantastic symphony or professional sports events such as ice hockey or basketball. Hundreds of restaurants tempt a wide spectrum of tastes from gourmet interpretations to a spontaneous family night out.
