Grossman BC lockup

The S.A. Camp Companies Burn Unit


Memorial Hospital has partnered with the Grossman Burn Center to make the highest level of care for burn survivors available close to home. The Grossman Burn Center is renowned for its pioneering techniques that help burn survivors recover faster.

The center at Memorial will include an 8-bed inpatient burn unit, catastrophic burn care, pediatric intensive care burn services, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and a dedicated operating suite, in addition to an ambulatory clinic.

Having a larger unit offering this level of care in Bakersfield means more burn survivors can be treated locally, reducing the need to transfer to hospitals out of the area.

The comprehensive center at Memorial Hospital will offer:

  • Acute care
  • Reconstruction
  • Rehabilitation
  • Psychological support
