Clovis Community’s new bed tower ‘tops out’

A woman of ultimate generosity

Sherri Evert has poured her heart into Clovis health care from her earliest memories. At the age of 10 she began her philanthropic endeavors by selling home-made lemonade with her best friend at Cole and 3rd streets in Clovis. Together they donated their profit to the building fund for the soon-to-be Clovis Hospital built on Dewitt and Sierra avenues.

Longtime hospital leader honored as Community’s “Ultimate”

When it comes to the title “Ultimate People” anyone who knows registered nurse Bruce Kinder understands how he falls into this category.

Kinder is one of those rare people that, “If he walked off a cliff, we’d follow him, no question,” says longtime colleague Lynn Bennink.  He leads by example and would never expect more from anyone else than he does himself, she said.

Dr. Kaups acts as an educator, giver and ultimate hero

Behind the doors of the emergency department, Dr. Krista L. Kaups concentrates with precision as she works to save lives.  Besides her passion and talents as a physician, she also has compassion to help in other ways.

Dr. Kaups is the Health Sciences clinical professor of surgery UCSF Fresno, the director of surgical intensive care unit Community Regional and the program director Surgical Critical Care Fellowship UCSF Fresno.

You could say that Dr. Mark Cunningham loves a thrill – the thrill of the outdoors, back packing through foreign countries, skydiving and bungee jumping.

“Once you fall it’s fine. It’s just getting to that first jump,” Dr. Cunningham said.
