Salem Medical Center
Salem Medical Center was opened in 1973 by Dr. Secundino Rubio and Dr. Armando Aguilar. The center was purchased by Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation in 2001 and currently employees seven medical and one dental provider. Located in MarionCounty in Central Illinois, Salem is a small community of approximately 8,000 residents. Of these 8.000 residents, approximately 2,000 are ages 18 and under. Currently, there is only one pediatrician practicing in Salem.
Salem Medical Center is a well established, busy practice that sees an average of 1,800 patient encounters each month. Although SalemMedicalCenter employs one full-time pediatric nurse practitioner, we believe the City of Salem can support the services of another full-time pediatrician.
