Memorial Hospital


Building on a foundation of nearly six decades of unparalleled care for the body, mind and spirit, Dignity Health Memorial Hospital takes health care in Kern County to the next level.


As Bakersfield's largest acute care facility, Memorial Hospital opened its doors to the public in 1956, to serve the growing needs of the community. Located in the heart of a re-energized downtown, the campus has received numerous awards and recognition for its quality care.

When the ground was turned on this community treasure 65 years ago, no one could know then how Memorial Hospital would grow. But through the leadership and heart of Larry Carr, the 112 bed community hospital grew into more than 400 and thousands of lives were changed. Today, Memorial is home to the Sarvanand Heart and Stroke Center, the Lauren Small Children’s Medical Center, and soon, the new Robert A. Grimm Children’s Pavilion for Emergency Care.

Memorial Hospital has many features designed to make patients and visitors feel comfortable and and welcomed. The Einstein Pavilion, built in honor of Dr. Hans E. Einstein, is an architectural monument to the warmth and grace that defined its namesake. A landscaped plaza and covered entryway form an oasis from the outside world. Inside, waterfalls and lush plant life define a space of natural beauty and harmony.
