Community affiliates sweep Heroes in Healthcare Awards

Since 2006, Business Street Media Group Heroes in Healthcare Awards have recognized extraordinary individuals in the Valley health care community who have made personal sacrifices to help so many others in the region.

This year four of the seven award recipients are affiliated with Community Medical Centers and were honored at the annual Heroes in Healthcare Awards Ceremony at the Bankers Ballroom in Fresno on Nov. 3.


Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Community Medical Centers.  Our dedicated volunteers provide a tremendous impact on the patient and family experience.

Volunteers at Community Medical Centers are a diverse group of individuals who generously give thousands of hours each year to support patients, families, and staff.

With three acute-care hospitals and numerous other facilities, Community Medical Centers has volunteer opportunities in many locations.

Retired doctor, volunteer named to Community’s “Ultimate People”

A wealth of knowledge sits behind the information desk at Community Regional Medical Center. Dr. Kenneth O’Brien – retired doctor and active Community Regional volunteer for more than a decade – is a staple in the hospital. He answers questions, helps patients and their families find their way and assists whenever needed.

Doctor’s good deed in Emergency Department noticed

It takes special people to work in the ED at the Valley’s only Level 1 trauma center at Community Regional Medical Center – and Dr. Ed Lowder is one of them.

A clinical faculty and emergency medicine physician working over the recent holiday weekend, he didn’t tell anyone the kind deed he did – but one of his co-workers found out.

Shuttle service now back at Community Regional

When the shuttle bus service at Community Regional Medical Center’s 58-acre campus came to a stop due to the downward spiral of the economy, several hospital volunteers found a way to get it rolling again to help transport patients, guests and those with limited mobility around the campus.

A woman of ultimate generosity

Sherri Evert has poured her heart into Clovis health care from her earliest memories. At the age of 10 she began her philanthropic endeavors by selling home-made lemonade with her best friend at Cole and 3rd streets in Clovis. Together they donated their profit to the building fund for the soon-to-be Clovis Hospital built on Dewitt and Sierra avenues.
