Adventist Health Bakersfield closes down burn center
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
Adventist Health Bakersfield has closed down its burn center.
The center closed Nov. 3.
The hospital made a decision to end its partnership with Grossman Burn Centers in 2015.
Officials with the hospital say it became clear over the last two years that two full-service burn centers in Bakersfield were not needed.
They say the closure of the center will allow for expansion of other health care services in the area.
