Lodi Health is one of only 1,043 hospitals out of more than 3,300 eligible hospitals in the United States to achieve the 2014 Top Performer distinction.

“Lodi Health is proud to be named a Top Performer as it recognized the knowledge, teamwork and dedication of our entire system,” said Lodi Health CEO Daniel Wolcott. “We understand what matters most to patients and families is the quality and care they receive, and we have made it top priority to improve patient outcomes through evidence-based care processes.”

Robotic-Assisted Surgery

daVinci-doctor-console-cartLodi Health now offers state-of-the-art technology with the installation of the da Vinci Surgery System at Lodi Memorial Hospital. Robotic-assisted general, gynecological and urological surgery means surgeons now have an alternative to traditional and laser surgery to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions and minimal down time. In addition, the single-site surgery option when possible allows patients to undergo a procedure, such as gall bladder surgery, with even less pain, no scarring and even faster recovery.

ADDENDUM


"An Important Message from Medicare"

If you are a member of a medicare risk contracting health maintenance organization, (HMO), here is some additional information:

IMMEDIATE REVIEW OF HOSPITAL DISCHARGES

According to Federal law, any decision to discharge you from the hospital that is made by your Health Maintenance Organization, (HMO), or the hospital must be based solely on your medical need and not on any method of payment. Your attending physician must always be in agreement with the decision to discharge you or to transfer you to a lower level of care.

If you think you are being asked to leave the hospital too soon, ask your HMO or the hospital for a written "Notice of Noncoverage" immediately, if you have not already received one. You must have this notice to request a review by the Peer Review Organization, (PRO).

If you ask for immediate review by the PRO, it will replace the expedited appeals process described below and in your HMO Evidence of Coverage.

HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOU FINANCIALLY?

If you request immediate review by the PRO, you will be financially responsible for hospital charges beginning at noon of the day following your receipt of the PRO review decision.

If the decision is not in your favor, you may request the PRO to reconsider your case immediately upon receipt of the PRO's decision. You may do this by contacting the PRO by phone or in writing. Since the PRO has already reviewed your case once, the hospital is permitted to begin billing you for the cost of your stay. Billing can begin at noon of the day following receipt of the first PRO decision.



EXPEDITED REVIEW REQUESTS

In the event you miss the deadline for requesting immediate PRO review, you are entitled to an expedited review through your HMO. However, if the outcome of the review determines that the hospital discharge was appropriate, the hospital is permitted to bill you for care as of the date you were scheduled to be discharged. If the outcome of the review determines that the hospital discharge was premature, the hospital will not be permitted to bill you for the care.

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.
