Vaughan Regional Medical Center is Selma's hospital. At one time, we had three hospitals: Vaughan Memorial, Selma Medical Center and Good Samaritan. The Vaughan was locally owned and operated. Medical Center was owned by a hospital chain, and Good Sam was operated by the Catholic Church. Good Samaritan closed in the 1980s, and later the hospital group that owned Medical Center purchased the Vaughan. Vaughan services relocated to this site, but the name stayed with it. The old Vaughan building, where my oldest child was born, was recently razed.
In this photo, a medical professional building is at right, and behind these buildings is a new outpatient surgery center. Cahaba Mental Health and numerous physicians' offices, dialysis centers, a nursing home and assisted-living facility are nearby.
The medical facilities here primarily serve Selma and surrounding counties.
