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.

I just concluded a great meeting with one of the nation’s most progressive heart / lung specialists and our CEO of Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital, Wanda Holderman.

The giant blisters on my feet keep fresh the fact that I actually completed the Eye-Q half marathon this weekend with our Special Friend and Community donor-investor Karen Musson and her daughter, Christina. 13 miles is a LONG way, but then again, Karen’s $500,000 commitment to Clovis Community Medical Center’s expansion will go a REALLY long way in benefitting Valley families for generations to come.

Had a great time with Mark Borba, Ross Borba, Nancy Flynn and Dwayne Borba Berrett as Rob Saroyan and I walked them trough the new bed tower at Clovis Community.  It is really taking shape!  The flooring is beautiful, the countertops and sinks and electrical are all in.  The VIP suites are exquisite – with warm tones of plum, silver and taupe.

Just heard the news about Bill Mc Farlane’s passing. Although it may have been time for him to go, Clovis and our world lost an icon.  Bill Mc Farlane will long be remembered as a pioneer and one who shaped a piece of our local history. We at Community, as well as many others, are grateful for his wisdom and generosity.

What a moving experience to witness one of our OWN Community Regional Medical Center RN’s be crowned Fresno County Mother of the Year! Julie Christopherson, Labor & Delivery, was nominated by her family and rose to the top amongst many other strong nominees. I was privileged to participate on the selection committee.
