Community Medical Centers has been giving back to California’s San Joaquin Valley for more than 100 years. As the most comprehensive and technologically advanced hospital system in the region, Community operates three acute-care hospitals – Community Regional Medical Center, Clovis Community Medical Center and Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital – along with several other healthcare facilities. Covering a 15,000-square-mile service area, Community is home to the UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program and the only comprehensive burn and Level 1 trauma centers between Sacramento and Los Angeles, and is the largest private employer in the area with more than 6,000 employees.
As the flagship of Community Medical Centers’ facilities, Community Regional is truly unrivaled in the region and measures up with top hospitals nationally. While best known for its leading-edge trauma and burn centers, Community Regional is home to expert private and academic physicians who provide nearly 50 medical specialty services, including the region’s first Lung Nodule Program that expedites care for lung cancer patients. As a leader in cardiac services, Community Regional was chosen as one of a few select hospitals in the nation to administer the HeartMate II, a revolutionary new heart pump for patients with congestive heart failure who are waiting for a heart transplant. Additionally, this is one of the busiest birthing centers in California, Community Regional offers the largest Level III neonatal intensive care unit in the Valley and is the only place in the area where mothers and babies can stay together during treatment.
Situated in a quiet, lush orange grove at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills, Clovis Community Medical Center is known as the “people’s choice” hospital and has earned top rankings in treatment and care. The medical center has grown in scope and reputation since its establishment and is Valley residents’ first choice for minimally invasive surgeries, women’s services and diagnostic procedures. On a campus unlike any other in the state, one of California’s most unique medical centers is responding to the needs of its patients with a massive expansion that will move an already favorite hospital to an even higher level of care and service.
The $300 million expansion and renovation project that began in early 2010 will nearly double the hospital’s capacity to 204 all-private rooms, making Clovis Community the first full-service hospital in the area with all private rooms. When the construction is completed in fall 2013, the expanded hospital will have a dedicated Women’s and Infants’ Pavilion, a new Special Care Nursery, 24 Intensive Care (ICU) beds, 11 inpatients surgical suites and an expanded emergency department that will be three times larger to accommodate a projected 50,000 visits annually. Upon completion, the hospital will be fully equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology from information systems to medical equipment, giving physicians and patients access to one of the most leading-edge facilities in the region.
