Oakhurst-Reflections on Giving!

Craig Castro: June 15, 20070 Comments

I feel blessed to have served in the role of CEO at Clovis Community Medical Center (CCMC) for nearly 17 months now and continue to be amazed each and every day by the generousity (care and giving!) of so many people and organizations.

In case you didn't know, the Oakhurst facility is an extension of the CCMC license.  I am fortunate to have Jo Ann Weston on my management team serving as the leader for our Oakhurst facility.  The Oakhurst Team is comprised of an extremely "(com)passionate" group of individuals, including staff and physicians, that serve the mountain commmunites in and around Oakhurst.  I am honored to be able to work with such great people to fullfill our mission.

I was awstruck when I arrived at my office early this morning (June 15, 2007) to learn of the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians and County of Madera have agreed to donate $700,000 to our Oakhurst facility!  This gift will be used to add new state-of-the art mammography and imaging equipment, plus modernize the building in which care is provided to almost 8,000 people annually.

As I pause to reflect on my "daily gratitude list," I am EXTREMELY GRATEFUL to Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi and the County of Madera for their generous gift that will assist us in providing quality care to the mountain communities we serve.
