Registered Nurse Margie Hill of the Health Condition Management Program at Community Medical Centers offers healthful tips to consider before you conceive.
The potential for birth defects and complicated pregnancies are the last thing anyone wants to contend with when welcoming a new baby into their family. But according to the March of Dimes, nearly 21-million babies worldwide are born prematurely or with serious birth defects.
Wells Fargo & Company on July 28 announced a $100,000 grant to Community Medical Centers in support of initiatives at two of its acute hospitals in the Valley - Community Regional Medical Center and Clovis Community Medical Center.
In the postpartum unit we have a wonderful team who is dedicated to you, by providing 24-hour care to you and your baby as you recover from the birthing process. You are the most important member of our care team!
The postpartum unit features 15 private and 34 semi-private rooms. We model couplet care – where mom and baby stay together rather than the baby going to the nursery. You and your baby are the most important member of our care team!
Community Regional Medical Center offers the only comprehensive perinatology (field of obstetrics that manages high-risk pregnancies) program in the Central Valley with a perinatologist available at all times, seven days a week and a 84-bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for those babies that may need additional care.
The birth of your baby is a precious moment, and our goal is to support your experience with home-like surroundings, a warm atmosphere and a highly-skilled clinical team. We would like you to know that the Women & Children’s Services program at Community Regional Medical Center is the most comprehensive program in the Valley offering the most comprehensive care for both you and your baby.
You and your baby have access to the complete range of health care all in one location – Community Regional Medical Center. Each year roughly 7,000 babies are born at Community Regional – making us one of the largest birthing centers in California, and the Valley’s choice for high-risk deliveries.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) involves collecting eggs and sperm from you and your partner and placing them together in a laboratory dish for fertilization. Days later the microscopic embryos are transferred into the uterus where implantation and pregnancy will hopefully occur.
The IVF procedure is a four step process and usually occurs over a few weeks:
STEP I: Ovarian Stimulation. Medication is used to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple ovarian follicles (eggs).
The birth of a new baby is a time of great joy – a life changing event that lasts in our minds and hearts forever. To celebrate the event of each baby born, we provide the opportunity to have their name displayed on the Leon S. & Pete P. Peters Future Generations Baby Honor Wall. It is our way of celebrating the new lives we have helped welcome into the world, while raising important funds for the family birthing center at Clovis Community Medical Center.
