Please park in designated staff parking

August 25th, 2021 // News to Use

Whether patients are coming into the hospital for services or they have an appointment with one of the physicians in the 1313 E. Herndon office suite, they expect to have convenient and adequate access to parking. Though it may be a shorter walk for you to park in patient or visitor parking, it results in a lack of parking stalls for our patients seeking care. Please help us keep patient and visitor parking accessible by parking in the Parking Garage or other designated staff parking areas.

Celebrating the Sisters of the Holy Cross

August 18th, 2021 // Kudos, Mission

Today, members of the Saint Agnes family gathered to honor the Sisters of the Holy Cross by dedicating the fountain to the Sisters – past and present – who have served Saint Agnes and the Fresno community for more than 92 years. The fountain stands as a symbol of God’s grace and overflowing love embodied by the Sisters and sits between Christ the Healer statue and the Prayer Labyrinth, completing our healing garden. Though we cannot gather in person to send off Sisters Emily and Frances, if you have a farewell message for them, be sure to send it in by Monday, August 30.
