Daniel Wolcott

Daniel came to Adventist Health in 2015 to serve as president of Adventist Health Lodi Memorial. Daniel Wolcott is the president of Kern County Care Delivery. What attracted him to this role was the opportunity to be a part of transitioning Lodi Memorial into the Adventist Health family. In January 2020, Daniel also became president of Dameron Hospital in nearby Stockton, California. This hospital entered into a management services agreement with Adventist Health as the first step toward fully affiliating with the system in the coming years. Daniel has led both hospitals in the region as well as the associated imaging center, surgery center and more than 20 ambulatory clinics in San Joaquin County.

Prior to serving in San Joaquin County, Daniel was president/CEO of Takoma Regional Hospital in Greeneville, Tennessee, which was a part of AdventHealth. During his tenure in Greeneville, Takoma was named one of America’s Top Rural Hospitals by AARP Magazine due to the excellent quality of care as recognized by the LeapFrog organization. In the years before serving in Greeneville, Daniel served in various capacities for AdventHealth in Florida and Georgia.

Daniel calls California home, because he was born at what is now Adventist Health St. Helena and spent nearly all his growing-up years in Northern California. His educational background includes a master’s degree in business administration from Georgia State University’s Robinson School of Business and a bachelor’s degree in business administration/marketing at Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, Tennessee.

Daniel enjoys being involved in the local community on issues related to economic development, improvements in livability, education, infrastructure and tourism. He believes that it is incumbent on the business and healthcare communities to partner with local government, nonprofits, philanthropists and education to improve the well-being of our communities as this will lead to an overall reduction of long-term healthcare costs. He has served on the boards of the Lodi Region Chamber of Commerce, Business Council of San Joaquin and San Joaquin Health Leadership Council and as the founding president of HealthForce Partners, a workforce development nonprofit.

Daniel and his wife, Cynthia, have four children and two grandchildren. He enjoys skiing, kayaking and spending time with friends and family. He is an active member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and is passionate about living his Christianity in a way that makes a positive impact on his community.
