Our Purpose & History

At Ridgecrest Regional Hospital, we’re dedicated to taking care of not only the health and well-being of the community, but also of the people who do the caretaking.

We strive to build a reputation for compassion, excellence and expertise that makes us the first health partner of choice for the people of Ridgecrest.

We’re building a place where nurses can transform patients’ lives and truly make a difference, while continually growing and progressing in their careers. Read more about how we honor our extraordinary nurses through The Daisy Awards.

A Long Tradition of Healthcare in the California Desert

From our humble beginnings over 60 years ago as a small rural clinic, we’ve grown into a full acute-care hospital and network of outpatient clinics, staffed with caring people who put patients first.

And we know that putting patients first means valuing, supporting, and championing our nurses.

We serve a diverse population in and around a thriving California desert community. We offer a place to work—and a place to live—full of rewarding experiences and growth opportunities paired with a more affordable and manageable pace of life.
