Dr. Michael Synn, medical director of Clovis Community Medical Center’s In Vitro Fertilization Embryology Laboratory and member of Community’s Board of Trustees, has been named one of the Ultimate People of 2011. He’s being honored by Community’s Foundation for his passionate devotion to the successful expansion of the Clovis Community and constant focus on improving health care in the region.
How many miles of new wires and plumbing will it take to complete Clovis Community Medical Center’s $300 million expansion? Try 237 miles of electrical wiring and 15 miles of new pipes in a monumental project that will nearly triple the hospital’s size and give all patients a private room.
Dr. Uma Rao jokes that not too long ago if you asked a hospital visitor about her specialty they would say a “hospitalist” was the person in charge of hospitality and greeting visitors. But with nearly 20 hospitalists on duty daily at Community Medical Centers’ three hospitals, more and more people know she’s the physician who coordinates care.
