UC Davis, Stockton’s Dameron Hospital consider affiliation (Sacramento Business Journal)

November 12, 2012 – A proposed affiliation between the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento and Dameron Hospital in Stockton is up for consideration by UC Regents at their meeting Thursday in San Francisco. The independent, 202-bed acute-care community hospital has been in exclusive talks with UC Davis since Dameron sent a request for proposals last year to find a partner to help ensure its long-term viability. The plan, if approved, could strengthen the university medical center’s regional network, bolster referrals for specialty care and broaden its patient base in the Central Valley, a key geographic region to UC Davis. “As we look at the way the market is consolidating — not just in California, but nationwide — we need more affiliations for economies of scale,” said hospital CEO Ann Madden Rice.
