San Joaquin Community Hospital maintains burn center
Bakersfield Californian

San Joaquin Community Hospital will retain a burn center despite an announcement Monday that Grossman Burn Center would move away from the hospital and establish a larger facility elsewhere.

Grossman officials announced yesterday it would be opening a larger facility at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital this year after its contract ends with San Joaquin Community Hospital.

“While we commend the intent to expand any local health care services, it is our commitment to build on our many years of expertise and continue to provide the best burn care in Bakersfield and Kern County,” Jimmy Phillips, SJCH executive director of marketing and communications, said in a statement.
