Community Regional Medical Center’s chief medical innovation officer has been invited to speak about our “patient flow command center” at a national conference for healthcare clinicians and hospital administrators. Mark Kestner, M.D., MBA, is Community’s first innovation officer and his role is to help our 641-bed, Level 1 trauma center and teaching hospital quickly adopt clinical best practices and respond more nimbly to changes in healthcare under the Accountable Care Act.

All gyms are cyclical as far as patron attendance goes and we are no different here in our employee fitness center. We have seen the usual tail off in summer time as school lets out and families take summer vacations together, followed by a spike in gym use in the fall when school is back in, which slowly declines in late October to early November and in turn gives way to a slow December.

On Tuesday we lost a special person, a person that if you met him once you wouldn’t soon forget him. Not only was he a fellow employee of Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital but a very good friend, I feel a true “Community Hero!!”. We mourn the loss of Mitchell R. Mays he was a Respiratory Therapist that we here at FH&SH have had the pleasure of working with for many years,  actually since the beginning. He was an employee of Community Medical Centers Fresno from before the name change to CRMC, many of us remember those days as well.

Whether it’s during the holiday season, or the rest of the year, the most important gift we can receive, is family.  At Community Regional’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), we believe in this deeply and work to create as many bonding experiences as possible – for families that may feel fractured by a premature birth.  There is no time of the year where parents feel that it is easier to be separated from their babies, but it can be particularly difficult during the holidays.

December’s hike up to Table Top Mountain with fellow Community employees was awesome!  I couldn't’t be more thrilled with the turn out: 30 hikers and four dogs started and 30 hikers and four dogs finished!  I am so proud of all the hikers who not only hiked Table Top, but conquered it! It’s not an easy hike.  We had hikers from Medical Records, Case Management, Corporate Information Systems, Finance, Education, Fitness Center, Emergency Department and more.

In this holiday season, here is a gift idea: give the gift of resilience to yourself. It is a wonderful quality which will also benefit your family, co-workers and patients in ripple effects!

Resilience, what is it really? An on-line definition explains resilience as:

1. The ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.
