Lodi Health has been awarded a Top Performer ranking from the Joint Commission, the agency that inspects and certifies hospital throughout the nation. This top tier ranking is a national designation and places Lodi Memorial Hospital as one of the best healthcare facilities. No other hospital in San Joaquin County has achieved this ranking. Congratulations to the staff and management for keeping patients first and working so hard to improve healthcare in our community.
On December 11, 2015, some forty directors and managers of Lodi Health and Lodi Memorial Hospital Foundation completed a two-day leadership retreat. At 11:15 hospital CEO, Daniel Wolcott formed six teams and each person on the team was given a new $100 bill. The assignment was to go to lunch as a team and buy gifts for Christmas to be exchanged upon return. As with most gift exchanges there was a variety of offerings, but what happened that day was truly special.
Several teams opted to give their funds to support others. One team spent their time driving all over Lodi supporting causes and people that have fewer opportunities than most. Here is a list of the donations made within one hour:
