Every once in a while I meet someone whose personality just overflows with warmth, and kindness.   That person is definitely Melissa Phelps, who is an office assistant and scheduler for the Clovis Community Hospital radiology department.  Melissa likes jalapeños, pastrami sandwiches, and country music.  She has a twin sister Patrice, a beautiful three-year-old son Lane, and is an expert Starbucks barista. One of her dreams is to hike Kilimanjaro some day with the love of her life- her husband Josh.

On Monday, Jan. 20, a few of us from Community took Pete P. Peters Foundation member Mark Ruof and his wife Diane for a sneak peek at the soon-to-be-open Community Regional Fitness Center – all made possible with the help of the Pete P. Peters Foundation. We had a great time visiting the center with Medical Staff President Elect Dr. Jeffrey Thomas, Community Regional CEO Jack Chubb, COO Craig Wagoner and the Community Medical Foundation’s VP Rob Saroyan.
