About Us

Our mission sets a clear focus for our work. Our values define how we carry out the mission. Our vision demands that we consistently and effectively live up to both.

It was in 1931 that the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word first founded a small hospital in San Bernardino. Today, that hospital—St. Bernardine Medical Center—has grown into a 342-bed, not-for-profit health care facility delivering compassionate, quality care to all who enter our doors. Inside, you’ll find an expert staff and state-of-the-art equipment to meet the needs of our growing community. Welcome
