New pediatric wing, garden debut at Memorial
Bakersfield Californian

The halls are lined with photos from Dr. Seuss books and the walls are covered with colorful murals reflecting Kern County — with visitors walking on the Kern River and wild animals roaming.

Outside, a garden featuring plants in the shapes of animals, plus fountains, Christmas lights and flowers, give visitors a soothing feel.

On Tuesday, community members celebrated the opening of the Bolthouse Family Pediatric Department and Helen Taylor Cobbs Children’s Healing Garden at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital’s Lauren Small Children’s Medical Center.
