Community’s employees long committed to our mission of “improving the health of our community” have taken that goal far beyond our hospitals’ walls to work on ways to also improve the health of the environment – which in turn helps us all be healthier. On their own, a group of like-minded, passionate employees formed a Green Team at Community Regional Medical Center, created an organic urban garden out of an unused patio at the hospital, pushed for more recycling in the hospital, and started an annual Earth Day education event to spread their green message.

We always try to surprise and delight visitors, employees and patients at Community Regional with the food we serve. That’s  part of the reason Morrison Healthcare Food Services, which runs nutrition services at the hospital, is bringing in a celebrity chef this week. Master Chef Martin Yan – yep the “Yan Can Cook” TV show  guy – will be visiting Pistachio’s Café in the hospital this Wednesday, April 11, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

I just spent the morning with the passionate -- and fearless -- team from our Community Connections Program. These outreach specialists and social workers spend their days combing homeless shelters, street corners and alleys looking for patients. Most of the people they help have been in and out of our emergency room at Community Regional Medical Center because of chronic medical problems that aren't well managed, drug/alcohol addictions or mental illness. Many have all three issues.

This is a guest blog from David Slater, MD, Pathologist and Education Committee Chair for Community Medical Centers Laboratory, and 2008 Fresno Madera Medical Society President. He knew Dr. Robb Smith well and considered him a friend, as did many of our Community staff and physicians:
