I chose City of Hope because of its innovation and care for each individual as a whole.
Whether she’s volunteering at a clinic in Washington, D.C., or performing surgery for the people of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, Fornati Bedell, M.D., M.H.S., is passionate about public health and works tirelessly to bring quality care to everyone. “Having lived in Liberia for some time of my life growing up, I realized there was a significant lack of health care and witnessed people's lives being affected by this,” she says. “Living in America, this proved to be true as well.”
Dr. Bedell received her medical degree at Georgetown University and a Master of Health Science at Johns Hopkins University. She continued her training with residencies in surgery and urology at University of Maryland.
Dr. Bedell treats patients at our Santa Clarita and Antelope Valley community practice sites.
