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.

Community Regional Medical Center’s blood bank partner Central California Blood Center will park their mobile bus in the Kashian Lane parking lot from noon to 4 p.m., Wed., Sept. 25. Appointments are encouraged, but if open slots are available, walk-ins will be accepted too.

I wanted to recognize my colleague James Pacini, PTA, in his endeavor to be a part of, and make a difference in, the way we deliver healthcare like so many others at Community who go above and beyond in their jobs.

The word is out – Community Regional Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is throwing a party to reunite patients, families and staff of the NICU!  It’s also no secret an amazing level of care is delivered to the area’s tiniest, most fragile patients and provided by some of the most amazing doctors and nurses around.  Yet, the strongest and most amazing people we come to know as part of our Community Regional family, are the parents of these babies we have the privilege of treating.
