Serving the Local Military Community
Palmdale Regional Medical Center’s service area includes approximately 30,000 veterans, as well as active duty service members and their families. The hospital is proud to offer quality healthcare services to its local heroes and their loved ones.
To well-known community member, Kevin Sanders, Veteran, US Marine Corps, the hospital’s effort to serve the military community has not gone unnoticed.
“Palmdale Regional is a true partner in the community and that gets a lot of my respect,” the former Chamber of Commerce Board member says. “I’m just always impressed by the hospital’s involvement.”
“Palmdale Regional shows up to support and do things to educate the community. It is what a hospital should be, what a large employer should be, in my opinion.” – Kevin Sanders
Sanders is also a two-time Palmdale Regional patient and is pleased with his emergency room experience. When he arrived with a severe dog bite, he was treated and out the door in an hour-and-a-half.
“If I had to get care, I would choose Palmdale Regional over anyone else,” Sanders says. “And that’s from my heart.”

A Focus on Service
His patient experience aside, Sanders is grateful to Palmdale Regional for its support of the local military community, much of it at nearby Edwards Air Force Base.
“Palmdale Regional can give us an opportunity or choice to get better care,” Sanders explains. “I have relationships with lots of vets — whenever I hear someone needs medical care, I tell them to call Palmdale Regional.”
“I’ve become aware of some of the newer programs they are working on and the organizations they are working with,” he continues. “The hospital strives to stay current with the doctors, nurses and staff. I have friends who are physical therapy nurses at Palmdale Regional, and without a doubt, they speak very highly of working there.”
Sanders is especially touched by the hospital’s outreach efforts. These initiatives have included Palmdale Regional staff helping to build 56 homes for veterans in the Antelope Valley.
“Palmdale Regional shows up to support and do things to educate the community,” Sanders says. “It is what a hospital should be, what a large employer should be, in my opinion.”
Palmdale Regional is proud to support the men and women of the military, who sacrifice every day to make our country a better place.
