The Lodi Memorial Hospital system has changed its name to Lodi Health after more than 60 years, after deciding its name was no longer reflective of all the services it provides.

Today, Lodi Health has about 60 separate programs and services, many of which are free-standing entities beyond the hospital walls. Administrators hope the rebranding announced Friday will better represent their full scope of services.

    First. let me address some of Doug's comments. Again, how Doug can can take a simple name change article and turn it into his endless campaign against HSS is crazy. Yes, Doug, favoritism does happen. And I'm willing to bet you your regular HOC drink that it probably does exist at the adult day care. But I'd also bet that many of those same people have donated time & money to LMH over the years. To reap the benefits of a community you must be part of the community and participate.

    Doug, if the employees really wanted a union because they didn't feel like they were getting a fair shake do you think that LMH would have SO MANY employees who have worked there for 20, 30, and even 40 years? Give your union rant a break.

    Finally, "Lodi Health." IMHO this is being done now so that there is a clear divide between the hospital operations and it's other services. WHY? So when the hospital is bought by a major player like Sutter or Kaiser it will be easier to do so with the financial people.

    LMH is a joke. Few skilled surgeons, so they send you to Sacramento if you have anything major. The future of health care in Lodi is not LMH, it is going to have to be a major group health firm.

    Gives me the impression that Lodi is without a hospital. LMH needs to abandon many of their non-profit ventures like the low cost adult and child care programs at Hutchins Square who seem to have a system of favoritism and nepotism to those who receive these services at little or no cost who are far from the category of needing assistance financially. And the fact that LMH pays very little to HSS through the parks and rec budget, rumored to be $1 per year. With HSS still struggling and losing nearly nearly $1 million dollars each year, why would the city of Lodi give them such aa break on their rent/lease agreement after seeing the waste that goes on at LMH wheree funds could be put to better use to help retain the once great reputation. I think the staleness of the board and the directors of administration at LMH need to have some new ideas and ambitions instead of growing too large to control themselves, which it seems to be doing now. A good start would be to let the nurses organize and allow them a vote on whether they want union representation without the fear of being fired for being a part of the organization effort, as was rumored to be the case in the recent past.

    Who would have known that the domain name (lodihealth.org) they registered in 2002 would, ten years later, turn into their new name?

    Love it!
