Community Regional Medical Center

Our Care Team

We know it can feel overwhelming to have your baby in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). However, you can rest assured we will help your baby grow in a nurturing environment that is protective and optimizes the care needed.

Your baby is doing important work in the NICU by growing and developing. We want to be sure we not only support your baby's progress but help you understand and participate in their care. We are here to support both you and your baby in your journey toward home. We want to help you get home with a healthy, happy baby.

Neonatal Intensive Care

In our Level 3 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) families are our No. 1 priority. While we can provide the highest levels of sophisticated neonatal care, we know that nothing can replace the love and support of family. That is why we have designed our 84-bed, Level 3 NICU with families in mind.

Our care environment is calm and welcoming, and we encourage family involvement in important care decisions. We provide care for infants with complex critical care needs, including premature infants and babies with a variety of diagnoses.

Center of Excellence

Community Regional Medical Center is the most comprehensive neuroscience institute in central California. Partnering with the UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program and private physicians we offer the highest level of neurological care in the region. We are the first and only hospital in central California to receive a “Center of Excellence” designation in neuroscience and the only hospital to offer continuous neurological and neurosurgical coverage to meet the needs of our patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our Technology

Our neurosciences center of excellence is home to not only some of the best physicians in the field, but also some of the most advanced equipment in the world.

Thanks to this technology, our neurosurgeons are able to treat conditions that were once deemed inoperable. Many surgeries that once required major incisions and lengthy recovery times can now be performed through a variety of minimally invasive instruments. The equipment is accurate to the millimeter, giving doctors instant data during some of the most complicated procedures.

Stroke Program

Community Regional Medical Center was the first hospital in the Valley to be certified as a primary stroke center, earning the Gold Seal of Approval™ from The Joint Commission. This certification reflects the commitment to front-line stroke care in central California, and is critical because it means patients can count on Community Regional to deliver the highest level of stroke care across the continuum of care. In addition, a committed team of highly competent staff lead efforts in achieving and maintaining this unique designation.


We are home to one the most sophisticated and comprehensive neuroscience centers in the state – the Central California Neuroscience Institute. Working in partnership with the UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program and private physicians, we have some of the finest neurosurgeons in the country.
