Saint Agnes Medical Center
Founded by the Sisters of the Holy Cross, circa 1929, Saint Agnes Medical Center was established to meet the specific health care needs of the Central Valley. In the 89 years since its foundation, Saint Agnes has shaped care for valley residents by always providing its services with the highest level of compassion and quality.
Saint Agnes is a member of Trinity Health, one of the largest multi-institutional Catholic health care delivery systems in the United States. The Trinity Health System is a network of 94 hospitals that collaborate to provide millions of patients with innovative and high-quality health care every year.
From emergency, diagnostic, surgical and obstetric services to state-of-the-art cardiac, cancer, orthopaedic and neurological care, Saint Agnes combines the most advanced equipment and technology with the expertise of top-ranked physicians and staff to meet the valley’s growing and diverse health care needs.
The 436-bed acute care hospital is well respected for its clinical and service excellence and has been recognized as one of the Best Regional Hospitals in California by U.S. News & World Report. Saint Agnes has received Blue Distinction Center designations for its cardiac care, knee and hip replacement, maternity care and spine surgery specialties by delivering better results and fewer complications than other facilities. Saint Agnes is the only hospital in Fresno County to be internationally recognized as a Baby-Friendly designated birth facility. The hospital has also received national recognition from Healthgrades for a number of services, including spine surgery, heart attack treatment and back surgery.
Saint Agnes’ arena of care extends well beyond the hospital itself. In partnership with nonprofit subsidiary, Saint Agnes Care, Saint Agnes offers primary, specialty and urgent care services from more than 50 providers at 15 locations across Fresno and Clovis. These facilities offer a diverse range of services to meet the complex health needs of the valley. Saint Agnes Care continues to expand its services with the future opening of a Clovis care center, making good health care more accessible and convenient for residents.
Saint Agnes also maintains important partnerships with Dignity Health and Valley Children’s Healthcare to promote an integrated health care delivery network unlike any other in the region.
Saint Agnes also supports the efforts of medical education through its operation of two residency programs for future physicians completing the final steps of their education. With 16 internal medicine residents and eight family medicine residents joining the program in July, Saint Agnes is doing its part to support and grow a local supply of physicians serving the growing population of Central California.
The Central Valley is a region of great need and Saint Agnes gives back to the community through both ministry and outreach programs.
One such program is the Saint Agnes Health Hub, a free program that addresses social issues that impede good health. Through participation in the program, underserved patients gain access to stable housing, health care, healthy food and reliable transportation, all of which help to ensure more successful health outcomes.
Saint Agnes also operates the Holy Cross Center for Women and the Holy Cross Clinic at Poverello House in Fresno.
The Holy Cross Center for Women, located in downtown Fresno, is a respite and learning center for homeless and low-income women and their children. The center offers counseling and referral services, spiritual support, educational opportunities, skills training and summer programs for children and teens. The center serves, on average, 150 women and children every day.
The Holy Cross Clinic provides free medical and dental care to low-income and underinsured valley residents. In the past year, the clinic has served 2,283 medical patients and 258 dental patients. The clinic has also conducted 654 health screenings at seven local senior-living centers.
The goal has always been to care for patients and their loved ones with the highest quality and most compassionate health care available. Saint Agnes has a long history in the health of the valley and will continue striving to provide excellence in all areas of service.
