Welcome to Adventist Health Bakersfield

Our Mission

Living God's love by inspiring health, wholeness and hope.

Our Vision

Compelled by our mission to live God’s love by inspiring health, wholeness and hope, we will transform the health experience of our communities by improving physical, mental and spiritual health; enhancing interactions; and making care more accessible and affordable.

Our Values

  • Be love: Love matters. Treat yourself with love and care so that you are free to love and care for others. Be trustworthy, forgive freely and find common ground.
  • Be a force for good: Be courageous. Take action. Whether it is through your position or your passion, work to impact your community for the better.
  • Be a mission owner: Own your role, find your talent and know that your contribution is mission critical. Ask yourself, “How do I inspire health, wholeness and hope?”
  • Be welcoming: Recognize all people are created equal and embrace them in hospitality as you would a cherished friend.
  • Be curious: Seek to understand how things work and why. Innovate and be open to new ideas and approaches. Own your mistakes and learn from them.
  • Be brilliant: Leverage your best talents and skills to shine. Make promises and keep them. Always expect the same from others.

We look forward to caring for you

For more than 100 years, we've been serving Bakersfield and the communities of Kern County by “Living God’s love by inspiring health, wholeness and hope.” That’s a big responsibility — one enthusiastically embraced by our caregivers, staff, physicians, organizational leadership and board members.
