We lost our good friend and colleague, Dr. Kenny O’Brien this last weekend. He was one of a kind and will be lovingly missed as he was such an integral part of all of us at Community Medical Centers for so many years. His smiles, jokes and tootsie rolls were among his many gifts to us! He certainly touched so many people over the years as a physician, donor and a unique volunteer at Community Regional. He was one of our Pioneering Physicians – along with Drs. Woo, Lowe, Masten, Mau, Jing, Schiff, Sam, Wiens, and James. The greatest generation, right?

Can you guess who is the tall one in the “bump hat” and hair net in the center? Some of our Community Medical Centers team and I visited POM Wonderful in Del Rey – a short 20 min. drive from Community Regional Medical Center. What a great experience! We really got the “insider’s” tour and were just blown away. Who would ever know what actually goes on inside those walls? They produce everything that goes to market from bottles to various flavors of pomegranate juice to the boxes in which they are shipped.

I regret to announce to the Community Medical Centers family that we have lost one of our iconic supporters: Pete Peters passed away peacefully at his Fresno countryside home Tuesday afternoon. Pete would have reached his 95th birthday in May.

On July 28, 2011, Community Medical Centers and our entire community lost one of its quiet leaders in Karen Kister. For more than three decades, Karen worked to leave her mark on Community Medical Centers, beginning as a medical technologist and ending as laboratory manager.

Last Saturday night, it was my privilege to have orchestrated a special pre-Easter surprise for Shaela Warkentin, the 15-year old Bullard High School student who was involved in a traumatic car accident and after a month and a half is still in our Trauma Center.  I am writing to share with you what happened.  You may be aware of Shaela, since there has been a considerable amount of coverage on her story and an outpouring community of support for her and her family.
