On Dec. 9, The Business Journal held an invitation-only event to announce their “2014 Best of Central Valley Business Readers Choice Awards.” With more than 20,000 votes, I am humbled by the news that Clovis Community Medical Center was voted No. 1 in the “Best Hospital” category.

Our director of materials management, Mark Hall, (pictured left, below) attended the event in my absence and accepted our “Best Hospital” award plaque.

This fall, various departments throughout Clovis Community participated in an on-site American College of Surgeon's (ACS) Bariatric Surgery Center Network (BSCN) reaccreditation survey to renew our bariatric surgery program's accreditation. I received an email last Friday informing us that our bariatric program has received "full approval" and continues to be recognized as an accredited bariatric surgery center in the ACS's Bariatric Surgery Center Network.

Our day started officially at 5 am this morning in the command center located on the 3rd floor of the new patient bed tower. As staff arrived, I was amazed to see the obviously prepared team fly into action. In a little more than three hours, we moved about 100 patients including 20 new moms and babies.

I am always proud of our Clovis team, but today will stand out in my mind as a historical moment when we made great strides in improving access to healthcare in the Valley. We are truly transforming the patient experience.

Today marks another milestone in our Clovis expansion project. We've just completed the inspection required by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). I am pleased to announce that after months of hard work and dedication from Clovis management, staff and physicians, we have successfully received full licensing from CDPH!

I am pleased to announce that on October 25th Clovis Community passed our OSHPD (Office of Statewide Planning and Development) inspection for our expansion project. To fully understand the significance of this milestone, you should know that less than 50% of all hospitals pass this kind of inspection on the first try. Kudos to the Clovis Team!

On Monday, July 30, I provided a "State of the Company" presentation to employees during morning and afternoon sessions. One of my important messages to staff is that Community Medical Centers is STRONG, STABLE & WELL POSITIONED. In light of this continuously unstable and ever-changing healthcare economy, CMC employees have so many reasons to be proud to work at Community...WE ARE THE PLACE TO BE!
