Wolcott Named President and CEO of Lodi Health

News July 9, 2015 (Roseville, Calif.) – Daniel Wolcott has been named president and CEO of Lodi Health, which joined Adventist Health in May, according to Bill Wing, executive vice president/chief operating & strategy officer of the health system. Wolcott will assume his new role in early August, working in conjunction with current president and CEO Joe Harrington to achieve a smooth transition until Harrington’s retirement later this year.

Wolcott comes to Lodi Health from Greeneville, Tennessee where he served as president and CEO of Takoma Regional Hospital. During his time there, Wolcott grew hospital net revenue by more than 40 percent, established a board quality and safety committee and developed a relationship with Debusk College of Medicine for the hospital to be a core rotation site for third-year medical students.

“Daniel’s strong background in community relations will be instrumental in transitioning Lodi Health into the Adventist Health family,” said Wing. “He brings a history of quality and safety as well as financial strength.”

Before working at Takoma Regional Hospital, Wolcott served as vice president and administrator at Florida Hospital Memorial System from 2004 to 2009. While there, he initiated a 30-minute door-to-doctor guarantee in the emergency department, which was a first in Adventist Health System, and achieved more than 95 percent success. He also grew the employed physician group from 24 physicians in 2004 to 45 physicians in 2009.

“The board members and I have been impressed that throughout Daniel’s career, he has been involved in the various communities he has worked in, and we look forward to him joining the Lodi community,” said Steven Crabtree, governing board chair of Lodi Health. “He served on the board of the Hospital Alliance of Tennessee and has successfully engaged board members and community leaders to facilitate transitions and build trust.”

Wolcott received an MBA in finance from Georgia State University in 2001 and a Bachelor of Business Administration in marketing from Southern Adventist University in 1997. He and his wife, Cynthia, have four children: Peter, Joshua, Seth and Sarah.
