Employee News & Views By Kue Lee Communications Specialist

Meeting a friend for lunch, it was another scorching-hot day in Fresno when I stepped inside the air-conditioned lobby of Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital. I felt a little dizzy as sweat soaked through my shirt and my mouth was sticky from the dry heat. These are the first signs of heat exhaustion.

Driving by intuition

Employee News & Views By Guest Blogger

​​It was a dark and foggy night. I was headed back across town after having dinner with friends. I was driving on a familiar road that I had traveled many times. So many times I felt I knew that road like the back of my hand. Instead of driving defensively; slowing for the weather road conditions, eliminating distractions, and being aware of my surroundings, I fidgeted with the radio and...

The Top 10 Things that make your personal trainer happy

Posted 05/23/2017
Health & Wellness By Tim Clark Manager Fitness Center

I am guessing the ‘Average Joe’ public is probably thinking the first thing that makes a personal trainer happy is seeing a client on the deck, lying in the fetal position, covered in sweat and whimpering for mercy. If that is your first thought, then you have been watching way too many episodes of “The Biggest Loser” my friend! So, in the spirit of David Letterman and...

Trauma turned to triumph

Posted 05/18/2017
Employee News & Views By Erin Kennedy Senior Communications Specialist

In my job I get to help tell the stories of miracle recoveries, babies born weeks too early weighing 2 lbs. who grow up to be rambunctious toddlers, guys who have 70% of their cancerous liver removed and recover fully, and trauma victims brought back from near death who eventually run marathons and go to college.

Happy Hospital Week! Today I witnessed a talent show like no other – put on by our own employees at the Shaw Plaza.  Wanda and I could not stop laughing as the dinosaur (pictured here with Wanda Holderman, Senior VP, Chief Clinical Integration Officer and me) shimmied around with its bandmates (a Sumo wrestler, a leprechaun and a cowboy) to the Village People’s “YMCA...

Gifts Make a Difference By Gifts Make a Difference

Giving back has always meant a great deal to me but seeing its ripple effect for the people I work with is more than special.   An employee – Carla – was one of those affected.  She wasn’t a nurse but was happy in her job for over a decade until someone close to her fell ill.  Watching all the care her loved one received from the wonderful nursing staff...

Marketing Genius

Health & Wellness By Tim Clark Manager Fitness Center

It is no secret that major corporations spend millions of dollars in mass marketing campaigns in an attempt to separate you from your hard earned cash.  Think about the huge amounts of cash a Fortune 500 company is willing to spend on a Super Bowl ads alone just to get that earworm of a jingle stuck in your noggin.  What if in a master stroke of genius one of those companies could...

The Darlings of the Diet Industry are Back!

Health & Wellness By Tim Clark Manager Fitness Center

The funny thing about writing blogs/articles like this is that I never know when or where a topic will hit me.  For instance, while watching TV one night the topic for this blog hit me as I witnessed Oprah proclaim enthusiastically, “I LOVE CHIPS!,” during an ad for Weight Watchers while at the same time losing 40 lbs.  Then not more than 15 minutes later while channel...
