Tis the season for the flu

The dreaded flu can cause mild to severe illness. The flu is different from a cold and usually comes on suddenly. People who have the flu often have symptoms of a fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue.
How to prevent the flu this season:


  • Get a flu vaccine
  • Avoid others who are sick
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects

Visalia Medical Clinic CEO to retire

After 25 years as the Chief Executive Officer of Visalia Medical Clinic, Richard (Rick) Strid is retiring and beginning a new career in teaching.

Rick has overseen significant growth in the multi-disciplinary clinic, which now offers over 60 providers as well as on site imaging, lab, physical therapy and a sleep lab. Under Rick’s leadership, the clinic was named Large Business of the Year by the Visalia Chamber of Commerce in 2014.

 

He has also been very involved in the community, having served as a member of the board of the Visalia Chamber of Commerce, Wish Upon a Star and Grace Community Church. He is involved in the Rotary Club of Visalia and is a graduate of Leadership Visalia.

 

Rick and his wife, Kim, plan to stay in the community, watching their five granddaughters grow, and he has accepted a teaching position in the Health Care Administration department of Fresno Pacific University.

 

“VMC has been privileged to have Rick at the helm for the past 25 years, guiding the organization through huge changes in health care,” noted Ralph Kingsford, president of VMC. “He has certainly earned his retirement and the board, physicians and staff are grateful for his leadership. He will be missed.”

 

Visalia Medical Clinic, an affiliate of the Kaweah Delta Medical Foundation, offers the expertise of more than 60 providers.

 

The Quick Care and Sequoia Prompt Care walk-in clinics are open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. For information, call 739-2000 or visit www.vmchealth.com.
