Hospital Serving Ridgecrest

World-Class Care, Close to Home

Welcome to Ridgecrest Regional Hospital, where we put your health, wellness, and quality of life above all else. For more than 50 years, we have been providing the people of Kern County and the surrounding areas with high-quality health services that they can count on in times of need. We are proud to be the close-to-home care provider for communities along US highway 395, and we are committed to building trusting relationships with our patients so that they can always feel comfortable coming to us with their health concerns.

Small Town Hospital with Sophisticated Technology & Services

Though we are located in a small town, we can confidently say that we can match the technology and resources you’ll find at big city hospitals. In fact, it is because we serve communities that are more remote that we have worked so hard to outfit our hospital with sophisticated and cutting-edge medical services. Everyone deserves to have close-to-home access to quality medical care, and we have spared no effort in making RRH the trusted healthcare resource of the Southern Sierra Region.

When you make the commitment to work with us, you are not only joining a team, but becoming part of a family. The staff at RRH considers it a privilege to serve the people of the Southern Sierra Region and we do so with the same expert care and consideration that we would give to our own family members.

Ridgecrest Regional Hospital wouldn’t be what it is today without our people.

Our Mission & Vision

RRH will be the primary source for wellness as well as treatment for the entire community. Patient care will be provided on-demand through well-designed facilities and at home. Quality and being a high reliability organization will remain key drivers with continued evaluations of clinical relationships with more comprehensive health care providers. We recognize in some cases best patient outcomes may be achieved outside our health system. We will continue to strive to be an independent health delivery system by strong financial performance.
