Welcome to the Inland Empire
The Inland Empire is an area comprised of Riverside and San Bernardino counties (along with the Eastern tip of Los Angeles County.) It is roughly 27,000 square miles, with a population of four million and is the 14th largest metropolitan area in the United States and the 78th largest metropolitan area in the world.
If you are looking for quality housing, excellent schools, outstanding park facilities, first-rate recreation and community service programs and safe and responsive public services, several cities are within easy commuting distance to St. Bernardine Medical Center.
- The recently completed 210 freeway provides easy access to sports fields, numerous recreational parks and movie theaters as well as the Ontario Mills outlet mall and Victoria Gardens outdoor mall.
- Closer to the hospital is Redlands, an established community known for quaint eateries, tree-lined historic streets, outdoor performance theaters, and trendy shops. With 90,000 residents, Redlands boasts outstanding schools and a small-town feel, as well as plenty of sunshine.
- If you fancy yourself living among the pine trees in a picturesque resort town, Lake Arrowhead and the surrounding mountain towns may be for you. In fact, Lake Arrowhead is nestled in the San Bernardino Mountains, only a 20-minute drive from St. Bernardine Medical Center. Located some 5,000 feet above sea level, San Bernardino Mountain communities see several feet of snow each year.
Larger communities including Chino Hills, Corona, Ontario and Riverside are also close to the hospital, providing big city amenities. But if you prefer a small town feel, you can make your home in any of the area’s bedroom communities such as nearby Highland, Yucaipa, Beaumont or the high-desert city of Victorville.
