Local interior design company owner Kay Garabedian got lucky the evening a large clot lodged in her brain. Lucky her good friend and business partner was there and knew the signs of a stroke. Lucky she got to a hospital right away. And lucky that first hospital sent her to Community Regional Medical Center, which had the expertise and technology to remove the clot from her brain.
Today Community Medical Centers’ CEO Tim Joslin testified at the House Ways and Means Committee’s rural healthcare hearing in Washington, D.C., where he urged Congress to revise its process for funding graduate medical education.
Anyone who knows Community Regional Medical Center’s Joy Guthrie PhD, ACS, RDMS, RDCS, RVT and assistant professor of medicine at UCSF-Fresno (Echocardiography), knows she’s a “go-getter”. So it won’t surprise most to know that she had a hand in creating a new program that’s a first of its kind in the nation – all based downtown at Community Regional.
