As a non-profit, unaffiliated health system, Lodi Health is able to reinvest in talent, technology and physicians to ensure patients receive quality and very personal care.
Since April of 1952 when the Lodi Memorial Hospital's doors first opened, until today, Lodi Health has evolved to meet the changing community's need. In 1952, there were 14,000 residents in Lodi. Today there are 65,000, and the area served beyond Lodi's boundaries has grown to more than a quarter million people.
Over the last 63 years, a lot has changed at Lodi Memorial Hospital. New buildings and wings have been erected. New technologies, like robotic-assisted surgery, have been introduced. Quality physicians and dedicated nurses have worked round the clock. Lodi Memorial Hospital became Lodi Health to encompass all of its services that provide the quality health care you need with the compassion and personal attention you want from the first day of your life and every day thereafter.
Our vision is to be the first choice for health care by providing the highest level of quality, care access, wellness and affordability through partnerships with patients, staff, physicians and the community we serve.
Now, Lodi Health is pleased to join the Adventist Health family, which allows for even greater service in Lodi and its surrounding communities.
