Community receives gift of $10 million office complex

Local real estate developers Richard and Mimi Gunner and George Andros have given Community Medical Centers a Fresno office property valued at over $10 million. The property, located on East Shaw Avenue near Fresno State, will be used as a corporate office complex for about 500 Community employees.

Bringing big-city medical specialists and research to the Valley

The Central San Joaquin Valley has one of the lowest physician-per-capita ratios in California, and changes in healthcare are making it harder for people to find a doctor here. Community Medical Centers’ 40-year partnership with the University of California, San Francisco – rated among the top five best medical schools in the nation – educates more than 300 physicians a year in Community’s hospitals.

Community’s bond rating upgraded again

On March 11, the financial rating service Standard & Poor's announced a two-notch, bond credit rating upgrade for Community Medical Centers, from "BBB" to "A-" with a "stable" outlook.

Healthy transition speeds homeless patients' recovery

Homeless patients who are hospitalized, treated and then discharged back to the streets have higher rates of readmission to hospitals compared with those who have established residences. To help better manage their recovery, Community Medical Centers and others created the Fresno Medical Respite Center, a nearly four-year-old “bridge” residence at the Fresno Rescue Mission that so far has assisted nearly 150 men and women.

Keeping the best people takes investment

Community Medical Centers provides its employees with numerous educational opportunities to grow their careers in the Valley. Last year the healthcare network invested more than $18.5 million in educational reimbursements, professional certifications and clinical education’ and advanced leadership training.

Hands-on nurses training cultivates cream of crop

As part of efforts to find the best nurses, Community Medical Centers teamed up with West Hills College Lemoore on an innovative program to train new nurses – providing for all the students’ clinical rotations and nurse externships in all of Community’s hospitals. Students are mentored by seasoned nurses, working side-by-side with them providing direct patient care in a variety of clinical settings, including pediatric, burn and psychiatric care.

Hospital system’s ethical leadership praised

Community Medical Centers’ Compliance and Ethics Program earned a full three-year certification from Health Ethics Trust after an on-site visit and extensive review of policies, procedures and other documents.
