Overview

Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC) is the flagship hospital of Community Medical Centers – a not-for-profit healthcare system based in Fresno, California, and the largest healthcare provider and private employer in central California. We measure up with top hospitals nationally and are the 3rd largest in California. CRMC encompasses several additional campuses totaling 909 beds to offer the most comprehensive care to our region which includes; the Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital, a behavioral health center, a subacute and transitional care center, a cancer center, and home health services.

 

CRMC is home to the only Level 1 Trauma Center and has the only comprehensive burn care in the Valley serving 2.5 million people within 9 counties. The 56,000 square-foot emergency department is one of the largest and busiest in the state. We have an 84 bed Level 3 NICU and a brand new pediatric specialty care unit. Future plans include building a women and children’s facility on campus and expanding with 65 additional beds.

 

We are affiliated with one of the top medical schools in the nation - University of California San Francisco Medical School that offers our employees to work with some of the brightest physicians and medical specialists in the nation.

Responsibilities

Rehab services are provided across the continuum, including a Neuroscience center and Primary Stroke Center, Joint Replacement Center of Excellence, Level III NICU, and the Leon S. Peters Rehabilitation Center.

 

Our staff is a balanced mix of seasoned clinicians, recent graduates and everything in between.  This offers an optimal environment for mentoring and implementation of the most current evidenced based practice. We support regular continuing education to maintain currency and further develop our staff. Our therapists regularly share knowledge through mentoring and in-services.

 

Being located within a Level 1 Trauma & Burn Center and teaching facility provides unique opportunities. We are able to admit patients at a higher level of acuity and initiate the rehab process earlier because we have access to the specialists in the acute environment.  We also work closely among the rehab therapy teams to improve continuity of care between settings. Additionally, access to the educational process offered in a teaching hospital offers opportunities to attend Grand Rounds, interact with physicians in the residency program, and learn from various healthcare professionals in the teaching environment.

 

Acute Care Therapy:

We strive to intervene early in the patients stay, often starting in the critical care areas. The 52 bed neuroscience unit is our most robust service area, where we treat patients with a wide range of neurological, spinal and nervous system disorders. 

 

The orthopedic service includes several surgeons employing cutting edge techniques, giving us the opportunity to learn and practice in new ways.  We also serve inpatient and outpatient burn units, the NICU, Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit, and the Emergency department.
