Adventist Health Simi Valley
About the Thakkar Family Emergency Pavilion at AHSV
Adventist Health, the Thakkar family, and thousands of donors from our community, provided forty-one million dollars to expand our emergency pavilion. Adventist Health Simi Valley is an award-winning stroke center and a designated heart attack receiving hospital. The new pavilion provides emergency care for approximately 30,000 patients each year.
Born and raised in India, Dr. Tucker (Thakkar), arrived in the United States with $108. He worked hard to become a physician, overcame tremendous odds and in 1981, settled in Simi Valley. He practiced for 30 years in Simi Valley and recently gave one million dollars to our emergency room expansion project as a way to thank the community and the hospital for the decades of support. We are incredibly grateful for the generous donation.
