Core Values


Caring is to show concern and compassion for others; look after patients and their families and co-workers. Adventist Health Specialty Bakersfield Team Members care deeply and it shows in their work, attitudes and actions every day in every way.


Compassion is the understanding or empathy for the suffering of others. Compassion is the emotion that we feel in response to the suffering of others that motivates a desire to help.

As a Adventist Health Specialty Bakersfield Team Member, you will be expected to show genuine compassion and empathy to our patients and their families. This compassion and caring will extend to co-workers and the entire Adventist Health Specialty Bakersfield family.


Respect can be defined as consideration for self and of others. Respect includes consideration for other people’s privacy, their physical space and belongings; and respect for different viewpoints, philosophies, physical ability, beliefs and personality.

Respect is both given and received. We expect other people to respect us in return for the respect we show them. This includes our patients and their families, physicians and each other.

Respect cannot be measured as a quantity. It cannot be bought or traded. It is one of those things that is earned and built over time.


Teamwork is working in harmony. It is working in collaboration with staff, physicians, patients and their families and all departments in order to achieve our goals.

Teamwork is a crucial part of Adventist Health Specialty Bakersfield and it is necessary for everyone to work well together, trying their utmost best in every circumstance.
