“I took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge for a family member and my good friend Brian Laird who we lost to ALS in 2012. Before he died Brian and his family established a fund at Community Medical Centers called “The Laird’s Gift” that helps patients with ALS and other neurological disorders.  In honor of Brian, I directed my support for ALS to help patients here where I work.

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.

National Doctors’ Day is March 30 – so I’m spending time thanking so many of the physicians who make Community Medical Centers the very best it can be! Join me, won’t you?

Find that physician who you work with side by side in the emergency department or one you assist in our NICU. Don’t forget our pathologists who may not necessarily be face-to-face with patients, but who work tirelessly every day to keep their patients and our community healthy.

On Saturday we held our second FIVE 4 FIVE donor appreciation event and it was awesome.  It was our opportunity to thank donor-investors who have stepped up when we asked for support for Clovis Community Medical Center – their doing so means the world to us and our patients.

Often times parents share stories about when their children were born, but when an adopted son asked his mom about his birth – she didn’t have a story to tell.

That’s where we stepped in. This mother has four children and one son was adopted at the age of 2 from a foster home. Now 4-years-old, the son is curious about where he was born and what it was like. Hoping to create some memories like she had for her other children, she turned to us for help.

“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.

Doing the right thing is important for president and owner David Bush and his wife Anne. So, when the opportunity came up to make a difference for our Valley’s young burn survivors – the right thing to do was make a half million dollar matching gift to get more people in our region involved.
