Lodi Health-Adventist Health Affiliation Completed

News

June 1, 2015 (Roseville, Calif.) – After nearly two years of negotiations and recent approval by the California Attorney General, Lodi Health officially becomes part of Adventist Health today. Adventist Health donated $2 million to the Lodi Memorial Hospital Foundation and will invest at least $98 million in Lodi Health to make significant additional capital improvements. In addition, Adventist Health will implement a new, state-of-the-art electronic medical records system.

Employees and patients of Lodi Health have already begun seeing changes; the Adventist Health logo has been added to select signage and information is appearing on both organizations’ websites. Lodi Health employees will begin participating in orientation forums starting Tuesday to learn more about Adventist Health’s mission, purpose and history.

What remains the same is Lodi Health’s commitment to its community and employees. The nonprofit organization has served the community of Lodi, California for 62 years. Both Lodi Health and Adventist Health are committed to preserving the health care services provided by 191-bed Lodi Memorial Hospital, 15 clinics, several outpatient centers, an adult day care center and a child care center. Lodi Health’s existing leadership also remains in place as does its local governing board.

“As part of Adventist Health, we look forward to using new tools and resources to continue providing strong, high quality healthcare to our community,” said Joe Harrington, Lodi Health President and CEO. “We’re celebrating today!”
