Baby Jennifer came weeks too early, arriving after her laboring mother was transferred from a Delano hospital to Community Regional Medical Center, the Valley’s high-risk birthing center where moms and babies stay together.
When it comes to heroes, there’s not a day that goes by you couldn’t walk into any one of Community Medical Centers’ facilities and point one out. And two have been specially recognized by Fresno’s Heroes in HealthCare Awards for their heroic efforts.
Valley moms and babies now benefit from a $150,000 gift from the Fansler Foundation. The funds provide a digital ultrasound system for the Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and electric breast pumps for the mother/baby unit and high risk antepartum unit at Community Regional Medical Center, as well as equipment, and scholarships for enhanced education in the Mother’s Resource Center on the Community Regional campus.
