What We Support

It’s often said, “if you have your health, you have everything.” Improving and expanding the capacity of the facilities at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital has a direct and positive impact not only on the healthcare available in Bakersfield but also on the quality of life in our entire region.
One of the ways that Bakersfield Memorial Hospital is able to continue to meet the healthcare needs of the community is through the support of the Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Foundation.  The BMH Foundation relies on generous donations from individuals and businesses in Bakersfield and surrounding communities.
Making a gift is an investment in a community resource. It is because of donations from caring people like you that Memorial Hospital is able to carry on its mission of serving the healthcare needs of our entire community.  Gifts are used to support ongoing programs, purchase new specialized technology, and expand services into new areas of need.  You can make a difference by giving in any amount.
