Message from our CEO

Welcome to the Bakersfield Heart Hospital website. Whether you are visiting to help plan for a future visit or researching our programs and services, we hope you find our website helpful and informative.

A great feature of our website is our on-line health library which contains articles on thousands of diseases and conditions, tests and procedures, and more than 1,400 vivid medical illustrations and photos.

We also have a wonderful, heart health profiler tool. Each year, one out of every four U.S. deaths is due to heart disease. Our evidence-based Heart Health Profiler calculates your risk of developing heart disease. After answering some questions, you can print your report and use it to start a conversation with your doctor, or you can make an appointment in our Women's Heart Center (we also see men) for a 45-minute session with our cardiac nurse to explain your findings.

We are proud to deliver the highest level of care and dedication by our entire staff of physicians, nurses and team members. We recognize the partnership between patients, families and healthcare providers is based on the understanding that everyone's role is important.

We welcome the opportunity to serve you and your family and we hope you find our website to be an important health care resource in your home.
