Valley Children’s Hospital opens clinic in Bakersfield

Valley Children’s Hospital Central California has opened an outpatient clinic in Bakersfield, with specialists who can see local kids.

Families say the new clinic on 34th Street will save them the long drive to the hospital, which is just north of Fresno. The local clinic opened Monday, and will start with six specialties. “I thought it was a standard doctor’s office, so the fact that it’s basically an extension of the Children’s Hospital is very nice,” Richard Harvill told Eyewitness News. “Being able to find all the specialists in one location, or being able to get referrals from one location, that’s very nice.”
