Loma Linda is a unique community of 21,000. The city has been a national center of health and wellness research for decades. Loma Linda offers residents an alternative to the intense, often anonymous lifestyle so characteristic of modern life. It is no surprise to find numerous families strolling along the city's tree lined streets, or playing in its numerous parks.
That said, for its size, Loma Linda has a decidedly cosmopolitan air. Thanks to the fame of Loma Linda University (LLU) Medical Center, visitors come to the city from around the world. Some are patients, others are students, some come to teach, heal or perform research. Many decide to stay. While the LLU Medical Center, and nearby Jerry L. Pettis Memorial Veterans Medical Center are the backbone of the city economy, Loma Linda is endeavoring to expand. Firms interested in becoming part of a wonderful community would do well to seriously consider Loma Linda.
Loma Linda is located in southwestern San Bernardino County and is part of the Inland Empire. It is bordered on the north by San Bernardino, on the east by Redlands, on the west by Colton, and on the south by Riverside County.
The city is in the southern San Bernardino Valley. The southern third of the city is known as the South Hills; this rugged and hilly area at the northwestern end of The Badlands is a city-owned open space reserve protected by a local initiative. San Timoteo Creek flows from southeast to northwest through the city.
