In the nearly 10 years since Madera-based Central Valley Medical was founded, the company has undergone substantial growth.
What began in 2010 as a business that provides lessons in IV therapy and blood withdrawal has now become a leading provider of training in the Central Valley for CPR, as well as administering electrocardiograms, advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support and other services. In fact, general manager Neneng Paat, says they’ve gotten too big for their current location on the northeastern outskirts of Madera.
“Actually, we have to get a bigger location because we just outgrew the parking lot,” Paat said. “We want to be able to offer more classes, but the parking here is just not big enough.”
They hope that by the middle of next month, they’ll have completed the move into their new, 2,500-square-foot facility in Madera. They also hope to expand the number of classes from 14 to 18 per month to between 20 and 50. They’ve also been addressing the high demand they face for courses to be taught out-of-county.
“We are trying to expand more,” Paat said. “We’re getting more instructors under our belt and one of them is moving — we’re getting another instructor down in San Jose. We’re venturing out in Sacramento, getting another instructor [there], so they would be under us instructing the classes that we have.
According to Kevin Stansbury, CFO, the company sees between 250 to 400 students a month. These students include the doctors and nurses of Madera Community Hospital, who get their renewals done through Central Valley Medical.
