Grossman Burn Center

Before 2009, Kern County residents in need of specialized burn care had to travel more than 100 miles  either north to Fresno or south to Los Angeles  for treatment. That all changed when San Joaquin Community Hospital partnered with Los Angeles-based Grossman Burn Center to bring a full-treatment burn center to Bakersfield. Now, all residents  from kindergarteners to firefighters ​ can have piece of mind knowing the best burn care is right here in their hometown.  

The Grossman Burn Center at SJCH provides:  

  • Full-treatment burn care at our four-bed inpatient center
  • Outpatient rehabilitation and treatment at The Aera Clinic

  • Financial assistance for child burn victims through The Chevron Fund
