Overview of Kern Medical Center

Kern Medical has been a community cornerstone since its founding in 1867. Today, we are an acute care teaching center with 222 beds, offering the only advanced trauma care between Fresno and Los Angeles.

Each year, more than 200 residents, fellows and medical students enroll in our UCLA-affiliated training programs, with residencies in internal medicine, family practice, emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and psychiatry.
