It’s that time of year - NICU Reunion on Saturday, Oct. 25!

The weather is cooling, the leaves are changing, and our neonatal intensive care unit is once again getting ready to welcome hundreds of families from around the Central Valley, to reunite with the NICU team for fun, games, and fellowship. Last year, more than 300 people attended the first ever NICU Reunion and the projection for this year’s attendance is even higher, as word has spread, and excitement for this event builds!

Being able to recognize the warning signs and act quickly, however, can save your life or the life of someone you love – your wife, daughter, mother or a friend.

On Friday I’ll say goodbye to the most fun-loving and compassionate, yet professional boss I’ve ever worked under. Carol Vander Meer, director of Neuroscience Services at Community Regional Medical Center, is retiring after 23 years with Community. I will truly miss all of her insights and professional guidance.

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.”
