Seeking Community Feedback to Improve Services in Selma

Community Needs

SELMA – Patient satisfaction is a high priority for Adventist Health / Central Valley Network, which is why the faith-based, not-for-profit organization is looking for members of the community to join its new Patient & Family Advisory Committee.

The group will meet with Nina Plata, vice president of Adventist Medical Center – Selma, four times a year for a catered lunch and discussion.

The Patient & Family Advisory Committee is a partnership of patient and family member advisors and an Adventist Health representative who are dedicated to advancing comprehensive and compassionate patient- and family-centered health care. Committee members will play an active role in improving the patient and family care experience by:

  • Identifying opportunities
  • Gathering and providing feedback on topics related to patient- and family-centered health care, such as improving processes and care.

“It’s important to gain perspective from someone who is not a health care provider,” says Plata. “We want to gain the community’s perspective and see what health care looks like through their eyes.”

Those who are interested in being a part of the committee may pick up an application at nurses stations in the Medical/Surgical Department, Emergency Department or the Short-stay Department. Applications are also available online at
