Ever have one those days where the stress piles up and then life throws you a 80 m.p.h. curve ball?  I had one the other day and was lucky enough to run into one of our chaplains. I shared that things weren’t going great and he suggested we take a moment to talk and pray and push the re-set button on my day.

If you watched the annual Tournament of Roses Parade closely you might have glimpsed some of our Community Regional Medical Center’s nurses beaming with pride and cheering when the float we helped build glided down Colorado Boulevard.

We took a busload of nurses from Fresno to Pasadena to help place flowers on the nurses float named “A Healing Place.”

Terry’s House at Community Regional Medical Center has a few more reasons to be thankful for this season after the Perinatal Medical Group’s Holiday dinner this week where invitees contributed more than $700 to help families in need at the hospitality house.

The group, which includes physicians Krish Rajani, Steve Elliott, Amar Siddique, Anand Rajani and Isabel Escalante, treated Community Regional NICU team members as they celebrated a year of accomplishments and topped off the night with a gift for Terry’s House as well.

Congratulations to Emilyn Chee, Mallory Cruz, Mir Hosseini, Nicole Lu, Yim Suwanphattana and Leonard Valdez for passing the exam for Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist!! BCPS certification is a voluntary process by which a pharmacist's education, experience, knowledge and skills in a particular practice area are confirmed as well beyond what is required for licensure. That ought to make all of us proud!

Our clinical lab’s entry way at Community Regional has been brightened for the holidays.  Pathology secretary Rita Canady-Ball is a master builder of gingerbread (and pretzels, candies, snack chips) village scenes.    We think she achieved new levels of design and construction with this year's creation, which we invite colleagues to stop by and see if you get a chance.  Rita spent at least two weeks of her spare time creating this masterpiece.  The entire Community Regional lab thanks Rita for brightening our holiday season!
