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!

I can’t believe 10 years have gone by already!  I am so proud of Community Medical Centers’ Post Graduate Year One (PGY1) pharmacy residency program and being able to reach a milestone year.

This was a really nice article in the Bee about our former clinical supervisor, Brad Isaac.   It’s a heart-warming reminder to our staff that while tragedy does change lives,  the thoughts, memories, and love remain and help to shape the future. Read the full story in the Fresno Bee.
