New ultrasound technology at Community Regional

Doctors at Community Regional Medical Center now use endoscopic ultrasound to assess lung diseases. This nonsurgical procedure uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images that allow physicians to accurately biopsy lymph nodes in the center of the chest without surgery. Endoscopic ultrasound is a relatively new procedure and a plus for the patient as it also is performed minimally invasively.

Community Medical Centers goes paperless

Community Medical Centers replaced paper medical charts with a new, computerized medical record system in all of its inpatient care centers, outpatient clinics, labs, imaging centers and at two of its hospitals, Community Regional Medical Center and Clovis Community Medical Center.

Historic moment as Community switches to electronic health records

Community Medical Centers implemented a state-of-the-art electronic medical record system starting Sept. 28, which is designed to enhance care and service to patients. Now there is one record for each patient in one electronic location, usable by all of those who provide medical care within the Community network.
