Community Medical Centers is the largest and most comprehensive hospital system in the San Joaquin Valley. For more than a century, our aim has been medical excellence and compassionate care.

We are a locally owned, not-for-profit health care system that operates three acute-care hospitals – Community Regional Medical Center, Clovis Community Medical Center and Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital – as well as several long-term care and outpatient centers.

Community serves as the Valley’s essential “safety-net” provider, caring for the uninsured and underinsured in a region considered among the most challenging in the nation for health care.

Our affiliation with one of the nation’s best medical schools, University of California, San Francisco, brings leading-edge specialists and research to the Valley as part of the UCSF-Fresno Medical Education Program.

Community also is the region’s largest private employer with 6,000 employees and more than 1,000 affiliated physicians.


Community Medical Centers is the region’s largest private employer. The Community family is made up of about 6,000 employees, 1,000 affiliated physicians and 600 volunteers. Having a comprehensive hospital network, the largest physician panel and a variety of outpatient programs and services means Community provides a world of opportunities for professional growth, new challenges and personal advancement. While our size gives us the unique ability to offer more opportunities to our employees, we’re also extremely proud of our "family" atmosphere and the focus on collaboration. Four out of five Community employees say they’re proud to be part of Community and they recommend our hospitals to family and friends. Those attitudes show in our low turnover rates, which have bested statewide averages for hospital workers for the past two years. In fact, nearly 200 employees have been with Community for more than 20 years, finding lifelong careers here.

Mission / Vision

Community Medical Centers’ mission is to improve the health status of the community and to promote medical education.

Despite operating in a climate where rising costs and inadequate government reimbursement have caused physician groups, hospitals and other health care providers to fold, we continue to prudently expand facilities and services for one of California’s fastest-growing regions.

We consistently lead the region in providing uncompensated charity care, and we re-invest vigorously in programs, technology and facilities that protect the health and future of the Central Valley.

One of the biggest milestones in our 100-plus year history occurred in April 2007 when we relocated burn, Level 1 trauma and other acute care services from University Medical Center, a former Fresno County hospital, to the expanded Community Regional Medical Center in downtown Fresno.

An expansion of Clovis Community Medical Center is under way that will eventually add new four-story bed towers and additional surgical suites.

Pediatric ClinicIn August 2007, Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital started construction on an $8 million project that will add two advanced-technology, minimally-invasive operating suites, a 144-seat education center, and an expanded surgery recovery area.

Further remodeling and upgrades are occurring at Community Regional, including a new lab and 100 more patient beds.


One of Community’s top priorities is helping employees and their families stay healthy and financially secure. We’ve bucked national trends by continually offering more health benefits to our employees while decreasing costs or keeping them static. And Community is among a small minority – less than 12% of companies nationwide – that offers personal wellness coaching, weight loss help and health risk assessments to its employees. We do all that and more through our C-Fit wellness program, available to employees and their spouses. Community’s affordable, quality benefits package is designed to meet our workforce’s diverse needs. Community’s offers:

  • a flexible health plan
  • dental and vision insurance
  • life insurance
  • discounted long-term care coverage for extended family
  • the C-Fit wellness program with generous rewards
