Neurology Services


Mercy Hospitals offers Kern County access to quality treatment for stroke and injuries to the brain or spine and neurological disorders such as epilepsy and others. Neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other specialized doctors work together with our skilled nursing staff to develop individual treatment plans to improve the quality of life for our patients.


Neurology involves the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Mercy’s team of neurosurgeons, neurologists, intensivists, interventional neuro radiologists, oncologists, and anesthesiologists understand the importance of balancing clinical expertise with compassion for patients suffering from neurological disorders.

Our Primary Stroke Center is certified by the Joint Commission and focuses on improving the long term outcome for stroke patients and providing community awareness and education.
