BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Lauren Small Children’s Center is essentially a pediatric hospital within a hospital.

The vision set forth some 25 years ago by this hospital’s late president and CEO Larry Carr was to have a full service medical center, to meet a sick child’s every need right here at home. Larry Carr’s vision has become a full-fledged reality today.

The man at the helm of Bakersfield Memorial Hospital today is Ken Keller.

Keller talks about the hospital’s future plans.
