Saint Agnes is proud of its attractive, modern facilities. We built them with the comfort of our patients and visitors in mind. We strive to make our Medical Center a warm and hospitable environment. We will continue to add to this section, so check back with us again in the future.

Saint Agnes Medical Center (1303 E. Herndon Ave.)
Established by the Sisters of the Holy Cross more than 85 years ago, Saint Agnes Medical Center remains the only faith-based hospital in the Fresno-Clovis area. The 436-bed Medical Center has a medical staff of 745 physicians and employs more than 2,600 men and women - all of whom share a commitment to delivering safe, high quality care. Saint Agnes is a member of Trinity Health, one of the largest multi-institutional Catholic healthcare delivery systems in the nation.

Originally located in downtown Fresno, Saint Agnes moved to its current location at 1303 E. Herndon Avenue in 1975 when it needed to expand to meet the growing needs of the community.

In 1998, the Medical Center began the largest expansion project in Saint Agnes history, creating a new home for our Heart and Vascular Center. The North Wing nearly doubled the size of the hospital and added an additional 100 private patient rooms. Other features include an expanded emergency department, additional cath labs and interventional radiology suites, enlarged outpatient center, cardiac rehab, and imaging departments, plus the addition of a medical education pavilion with a 260-seat auditorium.

The Frank Diener Family Chapel of Christ the Healer
The Frank Diener Family Chapel of Christ the Healer is open 24 hours a day for prayer and meditation, and is just west of the main lobby on the second floor. Mass is celebrated Monday through Friday at 8 a.m. and Sundays at 11 a.m.

The chapel is named for Frank C. Diener, co-founder of the Saint Agnes Foundation and devoted friend and benefactor of Saint Agnes Medical Center. His widow and family provided substantial gifts, which helped make the chapel addition possible. The marble in the Chapel is from Turkey and was finished in Italy.

Shehadey Pavilion
Named in honor of prominent local philanthropist, Larry A. Shehadey, this 20,000-square-foot pavilion provides an ideal setting for staff education, medical conferences, physician symposiums and public education forums.

Facilities housed in the Pavilion include the Nickerson Auditorium, Kremen Medical Education Center (with four breakout classrooms), a video-conferencing room, Cyber Cafe and the Owen Medical Library.

Sister Ruth Marie Nickerson Auditorium
New technology is a hallmark of the North Wing. This includes the new Shehadey Pavilion an ideal setting for medical education symposiums as well as public health forums. A highlight of the Shehadey Pavilion is the 260-seat auditorium with laptop capabilities in each seat and a 16-foot diagonal rear-screen projection system for teleconferences and video presentations. The Stryker Communication System, installed in the operating rooms and cath labs on the third floor, is also linked to the auditorium. This allows surgeries and procedures to be viewed in progress, providing valuable teaching opportunities for physicians and staff.

Kremen Medical Education Center
Directly across the hall from the Nickerson Auditorium is the Kremen Medical Education Center, a large multi-use conference facility seating 250. An additional four break-out conference rooms allow multiple meetings to take place at once in the same location.
State-of-the-art audio visual equipment links the education center with the Nickerson auditorium, allowing simulcasting of the program in both spaces. Flat screen plasma TV monitors installed around the room assure that every seat in the house can have a good view of the program.

Administrative Center at The Plaza (1111 E. Spruce Ave.)
The Administrative Center at the Plaza is located two blocks northeast of the Medical Center. The Plaza houses many of the non-clinical staff, as well as a chronic disease management program A Healthier You, the Saint Agnes Health Hub that provides resources for those in need, and other community outreach and educational classes such as the Better Breathers Club for individuals with respiratory illnesses.
