Family was always important to Dr. “Sam” Sathaporn Vathayanon who grew up on a military base in Thailand. So when he came to the United States for his medical education, and later to teach at a prestigious university, he swore he’d always treat his patients like they were related.

“Patients come first and that is what we are here for,” said Dr. Sam.

How lucky we were at Community Medical Foundation recently!  Katie Zenovich, Executive Director, and I  hosted a luncheon at our office for very special guests who helped mold Community Regional Medical Center into the world-class hospital it is today. Many of you may remember them and the compassionate work they did for so many years – Eugene Lowe, M.D., J. Malcolm Masten, M.D., “Sam” Sathaporn Vathayanon, M.D., Joseph Woo Jr, M.D., Burton James, M.D.

Today was a special day for me. To help celebrate National Volunteer Week, Paulla Sebra, Manager of Clovis’s Volunteer Services, invited me to join her and her volunteer staff at an annual luncheon held in their honor. As Donor Relations for Community Medical Foundation, I knew it would be a good opportunity to get to know some of the newer volunteers and have a chance to thank them for their hours of volunteer services.

The spirit of the holidays filled the neuroscience inpatient unit at Community Regional Medical Center as the Encore volunteer group of young professionals paraded the halls with holiday cheer delivering gifts talking with patients and their families. The families and staff were overwhelmed with gratitude for the generosity of this young group.
