In 2014 Community Regional Medical Center hosted seven "Internet Safety" classes. I am so pleased with all the positive feedback we've received and with the many requests for more classes to be offered. We have heard parents would like to know more about internet safety for school-aged children and about their popular 'Talking Tom' and 'Talking Angela' apps.

How many times you have been in a gym and seen someone you would consider a hard core gym rat on a regular basis – working like a total fiend but month after month you see them and they do not appear to be losing any weight.  Or … maybe that is a pretty good description of the rut you are stuck in yourself?  And you’re pounding iron like a beast 3 to 5 days a week and/or putting in 45 minutes to an hour of cardio 3 to 4 times a week and can’t shed a pound?

“Doing the right thing” is something Community Medical Centers is proud of. We took on pediatrics trauma cases when another hospital no longer could. We’ve answered escalating demand by adding beds and expanding emergency rooms.

Let's just say it outright: a hospital is a very hard place to work. Community staff care for people from every socio-economic and ethnic group, our patients and their families express the full spectrum of human personality and emotions, right here in our rooms and hallways.

Lewis Creek overflowed ... with hikers that is! January 3 was a beautiful day to enjoy Mother Nature with 65 (yes … 65) fellow hikers and their collective 8 to 9 dogs. Attendance more than doubled from the December group hike. I’m so pleased with the Community employee turnout and thank all that showed up.  Every hiker did an awesome job and finished strong.
