Emergency Services


Nobody knows when an emergency will arise—so it is important to know where to go for the right care. Dignity Health Mercy and Memorial Hospitals have addressed the emergent needs of our community for more than 100 years. Emergency services at our hospitals are available 24/7. And our three locations in Bakersfield means we are never far when you need us.


Comprehensive Emergency Services

The Emergency Departments at Memorial Hospital, Mercy Hospital Downtown and Mercy Hospital Southwest are open around the clock to treat serious injuries or dangerous symptoms. We are staffed with specially trained doctors, nurses, technicians and support staff - each committed to providing you with high quality care when you need it most.

Emergency services include:

  • 24-hour on-site access to state-of-the-art digital diagnostic imaging equipment
  • Board certified doctors and registered nurses trained in emergency medicine
  • Specialty service coverage
  • Primary Stroke Centers
  • Heart Attack Receiving Center (Memorial Hospital)

Wait In The Comfort Of Your Home

Our online waiting service means that a trip to the ER doesn't have to mean a long wait in the waiting room. Using InQuicker you can select an estimated hospital arrival time at one of our three emergency departments then wait at home until that time. 

Remember if you are experiencing a life threatening symptom or injury, signs of stroke or heart attack immediately call 9-1-1.
