Quest Imaging

In 2002, Drs. Donald Cornforth and Donald Fitzgerald had a vision to bring high quality diagnostic imaging to a community that was outgrowing its current options. That year, Quest Imaging was founded by the two board-certified radiologists on Stockdale Highway, just west of California State University — Bakersfield. For more than a decade, Quest Imaging has fused cutting-edge technology with exceptional customer service and medical expertise to create an imaging experience that is second-to-none in Kern County.


In 2010, Quest Imaging found a perfect partner in San Joaquin Community Hospital. The merger between the two organizations enhanced the mission of both health care providers, strengthening the services provided to the community.

Two new locations, Quest Imaging in downtown Bakersfield (located at 2700 Chester Ave) and Quest Imaging Shafter (located at 1150 Lerdo Highway, Suite A), are now open. Quest Imaging - Downtown is located just across the street from SJCH and next door to The AIS Cancer Center. This three-story, 60,000-square-foot facility brings all the latest radiology technology and includes a new, state-of-the-art Breast Center.
