He didn’t always dream of being a doctor, but a summer job during college driving an ambulance made up his mind – and after that Dr. Jim Davis knew he was hooked.
Years later, as Community Regional Medical Center’s chief of trauma, and the Steven N. Parks Endowed Chair of Surgery, UCSF, Dr. Davis spends his days and nights along with his colleagues working to save the lives of the most critically injured people who live or travel through the Valley.
Those who work with him say his passion, skills, knowledge and leadership are focused on providing the best care possible for trauma patients as well as improving the field of surgical trauma and injury prevention. Dr. Davis, a UCSF professor of clinical surgery, is internationally recognized as a respected trauma surgeon and has also published extensively.
“We are so fortunate to have Dr. Davis living and working in our community,” said Lynn Bennink, his longtime coworker and director of the trauma program. “Not only does he tirelessly give back to his chosen field, but to the community as well.”
Dr. Davis was instrumental raising funds for the UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program. He and his wife Amy also started an endowment in support of trauma at Community.
Dr. Davis remains committed to elevating the reputation of Community Regional’s already top trauma program as well as educating future physicians. Dr. Davis hopes he can inspire others to contribute as well.
Anyone can help support these endowments with a contribution. Please call the Community Medical Foundation at (559) 459-2670 for more information.
