The Kaweah Delta Health Care District board of directors has unanimously appointed a new member.
Financial planner and Visalia native Garth Gipson was selected by the board to represent Zone 3 through Dec. 3, 2020. The Board voted unanimously on Gipson’s appointment during a special board meeting earlier this month after interviewing two finalists for the seat — narrowed down from eight people who’d expressed an interest in the appointment.
“I’m very excited to be able to serve on the board to represent the members of my community,” Gipson said. “All four of my children were born at Kaweah Delta and that is part of my desire to make sure it continues as the great hospital it is.”
Kaweah Delta also celebrated the opening of its newest urgent care center last week. On Jan. 14, officials held a ribbon cutting and tours for the public at Sequoia Health and Wellness Centers, located at 202 W. Willow Ave.
The clinic comes as part of an effort to provide expanded care for patients on Medi-Cal or who are uninsured in Tulare County. Sequoia Health and Wellness is currently in the process to become a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) to allow access to state and federal funding sources.
