Remember to direct patients to Patient Registration

August 31st, 2022 // Around the Medical Center

Two years ago when COVID hit, we began directing patients and visitors to a single point of entry. Additional signage stating “Hospital Entrance and Patient Registration” was added to the campus to make it more clear where patients and visitors should enter. While many of us still refer to this area as the Outpatient Center, we’re hearing from our patients that it’s causing confusion. To be consistent with the exterior signage, please use the terms “Hospital Entrance and Patient Registration” when directing patients where to enter the hospital.

A message from Nancy Hollingsworth

August 24th, 2022 // News to Use

I’m pleased to share an update and an exciting announcement for the future of Saint Agnes Health. As you will recall, Saint Agnes Health entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent (LOI) with Madera Community Hospital (MCH) in early February 2022 to discuss transferring ownership of MCH. I am excited to announce that we have completed our initial work and the board of MCH voted to sign a definitive agreement to join Saint Agnes Health. The next step in the process requires review and approval by the California Attorney General’s office. I will continue to keep you updated as the process unfolds.
