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.

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.
