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!

It gives me a great deal of pleasure to announce two very important accreditations for Community Regional’s Echo Lab in our Non-Invasive Cardiology Department.

On April 9, we received news that the lab was granted a three-year term of accreditation in the areas of adult stress, adult transesophageal and adult transthoracic echocardiography by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). And, just a few days later, the department was granted a three-year accreditation for pediatric transthoracic echocardiography and fetal echocardiography as well!

As we celebrate National Neurodiagnostic Professionals Week, I would like to offer special acknowledgement and thanks to all of our neurodiagnostic professionals for their contributions to Community Regional Medical Center. They are an instrumental part of our mission to ensure the health of our community, not only in their day-to-day practice, but through advocacy, education and research.

The Palliative Care team at Community Regional Medical Center encourages you to complete your Advance Healthcare Directive – a legal document created to record your medical preferences for treatment in the event you are unable to make your own healthcare decisions.  On National Healthcare Decisions Day, Wednesday, April 16, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the hospital cafeteria, members of the Palliative Care team will be available to help you complete your directive or answer questions that can help you get started.

Sometimes as health care workers we can feel like we are body surfing in the ocean during a storm. The waves keep coming, there is not time to catch our breath before the next one is here, crashing all around us. There isn't time to regroup, we have to keep going, so we do.
