Adventist Health Bakersfield closes down burn center

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.
