Las Vegas, NV, May 27, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Scott Selco, noted stroke expert and hospital neurologist, has joined the Board of Advisors for PersonalMD, Inc., the innovation leader in concierge medicine practice conversion.
Dr. Selco earned his MD and PhD (in Neuroscience) from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in 1999. He completed internship and neurology residency at Los Angeles County University of Southern California Medical Center, where he served as chief resident in Neurology. He completed fellowship training in stroke and cerebrovascular disease at the UCLA Stroke Center in 2004.
Since relocating to Las Vegas after fellowship Dr. Selco has been a leading innovator in stroke and neurohospital medicine. He directed the Stroke Center at Sunrise Hospital to become Las Vegas’ first Joint Commission Primary Stroke Center in 2006. He then moved to the St. Rose Dominican Hospital system in May 2010 to direct their evolving three-campus stroke system of care. Under his direction, in August 2010 the Siena Campus became Las Vegas’ ninth Primary Stroke Center (PSC), and subsequently the St. Martin and Rose de Lima campuses gained PSC certification.
"I'm honored to be working with PersonalMD," says Selco. "Brain health is inextricably tied to bodily health, and a proactive, personalized approach to healthcare like PersonalMD's helps ensure mental and physical well-being: healthy body, healthy mind. But the prevailing primary care model isn't providing that, and it isn't working well for physicians either. The system is in need of change, and I believe PersonalMD can help guide that change."
"We're pleased to have Dr. Selco on board," says Robert Seik, CEO of PersonalMD. “He understands our vision for the future of healthcare and his past experience shows that he knows how to shepherd and guide an organization to the ultimate realization of its vision."
Dr. Robert Voy, Chairman of PersonalMD's Advisory Board, has high praise for Selco. "Dr. Selco has been an integral part of making Las Vegas a respected center for neuroscience research and treatment," says Voy. "I appreciate that he shares our ideas on the future of healthcare and I look forward to working with him."
