“Like other hospitals in the region, we’ve seen lower patient volumes. So I’ve told our employees we need new capital to invest in new resources and grow our organization. For them, and for the broader community, it is better to make this change to have the opportunity to grow.”

Lodi Health chief executive officer Joe Harrington

“I’m very enthusiastic. We’ve been working on this for two years now. We did everything we could to let people know why we chose Adventist Health. We’re on the right road.”
