Selma ICU Nearing Completion


Selma ICU Mock DesignsICU In Selma

The new Intensive Care Unit at Adventist Medical Center - Selma is expected to begin caring for patients in April 2017.

“Having an Intensive Care Unit in Selma is huge,” says Dr. Shailesh Shetty, board-certified cardiologist in Selma. “The ICU is where our sickest patients are treated, and by having our very own in Selma, we won’t have to send them away to seek care. They’ll get to stay close to home, close to their families.”

The Selma emergency department, which cares for more than 50,000 patients a year, currently transfers about 30 patients monthly to other hospitals for intensive care.

The new unit will be equipped with six comfortable beds that have been tested and approved by community members. Our very own Adventist Health staff took recommendations and voted on the very best.

The next project to come in 2018-19 is a new Cardiac Catheterization Lab for heart diagnostic and vascular procedures.

The hospital also is working toward expanding the Emergency Department to accommodate more patients.

Thanks to our generous donors

Adventist Medical Center - Selma's foundation has donated more than $50,000 to the hospital's improvement project. Donors now support health care in Selma through the Central Valley Health Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
