Community Medical Centers is a hub for the expanded use and interconnectivity of electronic medical records in the Central San Joaquin Valley.
When more than 240,000 Fresno-area residents visit their primary care and specialty physicians, their electronic health records are available through a Community clinical information system called Epic. The same Epic electronic records also track the 650,000 visits made annually by patients to Community’s hospitals, clinics and imaging centers.
Laura Acevedo, an executive secretary at Community Regional Medical Center, had never stepped foot in a gym before she began working out at the hospital’s new employee fitness center. Now after months of hitting the gym daily at 5:30 a.m. she’s 16 pounds slimmer, has lost 30 inches and had to go shopping for new clothes.
Accessing your health information just became easier with Community Medical Centers’ MyChart electronic health records designed to let patients access their information online.
Compared to other Californians, Valley residents have higher poverty rates, lack access to health insurance and medical providers, have higher rates of asthma and diabetes and don’t get their behavioral health needs adequately addressed. Those are some of the findings from research across four counties published in a “Community Needs Assessment” report by the Central Valley Health Policy Institute at California State University, Fresno.
For the second time in just two months, Community Medical Centers has received an improved financial rating that cites strong clinical services and stellar management among other attributes as a case for the upgrade.

Community Medical Centers provided nearly $152 million in uncompensated services and programs in fiscal year 2012/2013, equivalent to 12% of its total expenses, according to the nonprofit hospital system’s annual community benefits report filed with the State of California.
Community has historically spent more on uncompensated community benefits than all other Fresno-area hospitals combined. And, some years, nearly double the combined total of other area hospitals.
Community Medical Centers made this year’s InformationWeek 500 – a list of top technology innovators in the U.S. According to InformationWeek magazine, this year’s theme is digital business rooted in data analytics, mobile computing, social networking and other customer-focused technologies.
The medical field is constantly changing and so is the need for medical education. Community Medical Centers’ partners at Wells Fargo Bank met this need by again showing their support with a $100,000 commitment toward employees' education at Community.
Staff at Community Medical Centers wish our physicians a happy Doctors Day 2013!
