In response to COVID-19, our doctors, nurses and other care team members are utilizing necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) that keep them and the community safe. While we have enough masks and PPE as it stands now, we are focused on keeping up with demand. Many people want to help and we thank you for your interest. See below for a list of items we currently need.
Dignity Health is grateful for donations from our community. Our three Bakersfield locations (Memorial Hospital, Mercy Hospital Downtown, and Mercy Hospital Southwest) are working together to ensure a seamless process.
