TO EXPAND healthcare choices and access in the Stockton area, Adventist Health began managing Dameron Hospital on Jan. 1, 2020, under an agreement between the nonprofit healthcare organizations. Dameron, a 202-bed medical center, chose Adventist Health to manage the hospital because the two organizations share a commitment to community and because Adventist Health brings the expertise and resources of a large healthcare system to Stockton. “Dameron leadership and staff want to do more for their community, and this agreement makes that possible,” says Dameron Hospital Board Chairman Bill Trezza. “Adventist Health has expanded and improved healthcare services in Lodi since joining the community in 2015, and we’re eager to build San Joaquin County healthcare services together. With the many changes and challenges in healthcare, being connected to a system offers many advantages for a freestanding hospital like Dameron.” Adventist Health is honored to have been selected for this agreement, says Daniel Wolcott, president of Dameron Hospital and Adventist Health Lodi Memorial. “Dameron has a heritage of healthcare excellence, and we look forward to building on that,” he says. During the management period, Adventist Health will work toward a more formal affiliation that would benefit the hospital and community. DameronHospital.org • Health Outlook  3 NEWS
