Burn unit coming to Bakersfield Memorial Hospital

Dignity Health and the Grossman Burn Centers have finalized an agreement for a new burn unit at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital.

Preparations for the new unit will begin in April after Grossman completes its contractual duties to San Joaquin Community Hospital, where it manages a burn unit.

The new burn unit at Bakersfield Memorial will open in a temporary space and will move to its permanent location at the hospital once construction is finished and all necessary regulatory approvals have been completed.
