In 1999, Ed and Sara Wilkins and their family spent days living in a conference room at then-University Medical Center, the area’s only Level 1 trauma center at the time. The space was close to Sam’s intensive care room – their son – just 27 and severely injured in a terrible traffic accident.

Miles from their home, the Wilkins wouldn’t leave the hospital in case something happened. Though Sam received the best care possible, after 30 plus days of fighting for his life, he lost his battle.

“Bush-built” has a special meaning for all those who work with David A. Bush Inc., a construction company in Hanford with projects in the Fresno area and surrounding region.

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.

Every year we have more and more Community employees who respond to the call to give back and support the Valley’s largest healthcare network and the hospitals who provide the most charity care to patients – “US”. This year it’s exciting to see a group of clinical units at Community Regional Medical Center challenging each other to raise $20,000 for Terry’s House, Community’s home away from home for patient families while their loved ones heal in the hospital.
