Uno de mis pasatiempos favoritos es cocinar. ¡Me encanta pasar tiempo en la cocina! Y como buena Mexicana, en mi mesa no puede faltar la salsa. Mi papá solía decir que la comida sin salsa simplemente no tenía sabor. Y la verdad es que ¡estoy de acuerdo!

Now that ground's been broken for a new ambulatory care center at Community Regional, the clock is again running as to when Fresno County will regain control of the entire sprawling Cedar/Kings Canyon campus that once was home to University Medical Center.

What do you think should happen to the site?  I've listened to Board of Supervisors hearings when ideas have been floated to convert it into a medical office complex, a mercado, a shopping center. I've heard suggestions it become a homeless shelter, an adolescent psychiatric treatment center, respite care.

Well, a fragrance company has come out with a sprayable fragrance that apparently "smells like the school" for only $60! (Penn State). The developer has put together a recipe for perfume and cologne that was inspired by the Pennsylvania State University's blue and white colors and its campus landscaping. The perfume is a concoction of vanilla, lilac, rose and white patchouli, and the cologne is of blue cypress and cracked pepper (cracked pepper!?!). I guess the football fans should love it!

If you've visited or driven by the Clovis Community Medical Center (CCMC) campus lately you have noticed a flurry of construction activity underway relative to our exciting new Outpatient Center Expansion which we commonly refer to as Phase A in a multi-phased master campus expansion plan that is expected to span the next 5-years or so.

Using new technology to improve life is just one of the many common elements of my two jobs as CEO of Clovis Community Medical Center (CCMC) and Chief Information Officer (CIO) for Community Medical Centers that I love!

When I dislocated my kneecap on the baseball field, the emergency room doc in New London, Conn., literally laughed at my pain as he popped my knee back into place in a crowded hallway with no anesthetic.

When my daughter dislocated her kneecap while sporting around decades later, the ER doc in Fresno ensured she was absolutely giggling with pain meds before he realigned her knee.

I couldn't tell you what those docs charged my insurers for their respective talents, but the byzantine world of hospital billing is about to get even more bizarre.
