When Community returns to Fresno County the total control of the former University Medical Center campus in the next year or so, here are some potential uses that readers of this blog suggested:

  • I'd make the building into a psych care unit because the people of Fresno need more services for that.

  • Move the county social services out of its cramped offices and into the building.

  • Use if for senior living, medical offices, lab, pharmacy.

  • Consolidate Social Security, welfare, unemployment, housing, immigration on one location.

...and busy, overhwelmed, stressed out, and melancholy! Well, it's not easy being cheerful when many are faced with foreclosures, lay-offs, global economic woes, lack of confidence, the credit debacle, and high-stakes bailouts. Oh, THAT sounds like a Merry Christmas!

Now that ground's been broken for a new ambulatory care center at Community Regional, the clock is again running as to when Fresno County will regain control of the entire sprawling Cedar/Kings Canyon campus that once was home to University Medical Center.

What do you think should happen to the site?  I've listened to Board of Supervisors hearings when ideas have been floated to convert it into a medical office complex, a mercado, a shopping center. I've heard suggestions it become a homeless shelter, an adolescent psychiatric treatment center, respite care.

Well, a fragrance company has come out with a sprayable fragrance that apparently "smells like the school" for only $60! (Penn State). The developer has put together a recipe for perfume and cologne that was inspired by the Pennsylvania State University's blue and white colors and its campus landscaping. The perfume is a concoction of vanilla, lilac, rose and white patchouli, and the cologne is of blue cypress and cracked pepper (cracked pepper!?!). I guess the football fans should love it!

If you've visited or driven by the Clovis Community Medical Center (CCMC) campus lately you have noticed a flurry of construction activity underway relative to our exciting new Outpatient Center Expansion which we commonly refer to as Phase A in a multi-phased master campus expansion plan that is expected to span the next 5-years or so.
