About Us

Message from our President & CEO

Welcome. My name is Michelle Oxford and I am the CEO of Bakersfield Heart Hospital. I would like to introduce you to our specialized hospital services provided by our amazing team of health care professionals whose mission is to enhance the quality and health of our patients and their families by providing the highest personal service and delivering technologically advanced healthcare care through a compassionate, patient­ centered approach. This mission is the very foundation for every decision we make.

 

Bakersfield Heart Hospital is a 47 bed, partially physician owned, acute care hospital offering a full range of services including cardiovascular and orthopedic services, a wound care center, 24-hour emergency care and general/outpatient surgical services. Bakersfield Heart Hospital is home to the only Women’s Heart Center in Kern County where women (and now men) can sit with a cardiac nurse and assess their risk factors for heart disease.

 

Bakersfield Heart Hospital’s culture is one of compassion and excellence in patient care. I am especially proud to work with our staff of over 300 clinical professionals and physicians who collaborate to promote the best in technologically advanced and evidence-based treatments.

On our website, you will find testimonials by patients who have experienced this care and hear about the difference we have made in their quality of life. Our mission is our roadmap and we continually strive to make the difference in the lives of our patients and their families.

 

We will strive to not only meet but also exceed your expectations. We know you have options for your health care needs and we will consider your choosing Bakersfield Heart Hospital for your care as a true privilege. We sincerely look forward to serving you and your loved ones.
