SELMA – United Health Centers is hosting a grand opening ceremony for its Selma Center at 11 a.m. Wednesday, March 13. The Center is at 2705 S. Highland Ave. and this is their 16th facility. The event is open to the public.
The new center is a state-of-the-art 12,000 square foot building with 17 exam rooms, 11 dental operatories and three optometry exam rooms. All UHC services will be available including: medical, dental, optometry, chiropractic, behavioral health and ancillary services.
The new center was built by BMY Construction and features unique architectural features and finishes, plus the latest in advanced electronic medical records technology with access for medical records, prescription refills, scheduling appointments, as well as the patient health portal.
The Selma Health Center will serve residents of Selma and its surrounding communities with accessible, comprehensive quality health care to everyone, including farm worker families and the underserved living in rural communities.

Elected City and Chamber will attend as will Fresno County, Federal and State legislators, UHC Board members and UHC executive staff. Building contractors and facility designers will also be on hand.
The event kicks off with the presentation of colors by Selma High School’s Marine Corps JROTC. Fresno violinist Patrick Contreras will perform the National Anthem. The reception includes light refreshments.
