Lodi Memorial Hospital, (LMH), is a private, not-for-profit hospital that strives to improve the quality of life in the community it serves - both in and beyond the hospital walls. As a non-profit, unaffiliated hospital, LMH is able to reinvest in talent, technology and physicians to ensure patients receive quality and very personal care.
Since April of 1952 when the hospital doors first opened, until today, LMH 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. In 1952, most of the population paid directly for care.
Today, government or employers via HMOs pay for many people's health care; yet many individuals have no coverage at all, and they come to us for help. That makes for a challenging environment.
