Sierra View Medical Center is a not-for-profit public entity that is governed by an elected five-member Board of Directors. The Sierra View Local Healthcare District Board serves a governing body for Sierra View Medical Center and holds monthly meetings to vote on District matters, discuss the current state of the hospital and receive both employee and community feedback.

District 1: Dr. Bindsagar Reddy, MD - Chairman

Representing District 1 is Dr. Bindusagar Reddy, MD. Dr. Reddy is a local cardiologist who established his own practice and has been a part of the Porterville community for nearly 30 years. As a triple-board Certified Cardiologist, by the American Board of Internal Medicine, he performs a variety of interventional cardiac procedures at Sierra View Medical Center, Kaweah Delta, and Bakersfield Heart Hospital.

Dr. Reddy is a founder of Bakersfield Heart Hospital and is an active Bakersfield Heart Hospital Board Member. He is also involved with the Fellow of American College of Cardiology.

His background in medicine and business, coupled with his Bakersfield Heart Hospital Board experience, gives Dr. Reddy a unique perspective on how to run a successful medical center while prioritizing patient care.

District 2: Dr. Gaurang Pandya, MD

Dr. Gaurang Pandya, MD representing District 2, has served as a Sierra View Local Healthcare District Board of Director since 2012 and has been active in the community for more than 30 years. Dr. Pandya volunteered for Active Military Duty after his surgery residency and became certified with the American Board of Surgery.

In addition to being on the SVLHCD Board, Dr. Pandya has served as past President of Tulare County Medical Society, and was President of California Medical Association President's Forum.

Dr. Pandya believes the SVLHCD Board of Directors has an opportunity to continue to steer the hospital in the direction of providing high quality local, medical and surgical services so that patients of the Porterville community and surrounding areas do not have to travel outside of the area for care.

Some of his priority goals include: success of the soon to start, primary care physician residency training program; develop a long term strategic plan for current and future pandemic response and management of the hospital system; protect the current specialty services providers and continue to add more services to our local choices; meet the financial viability challenges; continue to grow the infrastructure for outpatient medical and surgical services delivery and to help bring a mental health services clinic.
