At Central California Faculty Medical Group and University Centers of Excellence, our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, providers, and staff.
In an effort to provide updated information to patients about frequently asked questions, policies and procedures, and the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have aggregated information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Fresno County Department of Public Health, California Department of Public Health, and CCFMG Operations. Rest assured we are in close communication and working closely with the Fresno County Department of Public Health, Community Medical Centers, and UCSF Fresno to ensure we are following all recommendations to provide the best possible care for patients.
