Kern Medical's leadership team is focused on innovative, advanced ways to transform our patient and family experience for those in our care.  As an employer of choice, our focus is to enhance our organization to benefit both our current and future employees.

Bakersfield is nestled in California's southern Central Valley.  Agriculture and oil are long-standing contributors to our economy, with Kern County being among the largest producers of almonds and carrots in the world as well as being the largest producer of oil in California.

Our location is one of our greatest assets.  Within a 2-3 hour drive, you can experience central California beaches, Sequoia National Forest, major league baseball with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Hollywood, Disneyland, and numerous other amusement park attractions.

Bakersfield is a philanthropic, family-oriented community with hundreds of parks and campgrounds.  Our mild winters allow for outdoor activity all year, including hiking, fishing, camping, bicycling, and river rafting.
