UC Davis, Stockton’s Dameron Hospital affiliation gets committee approval

A proposed affiliation between the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento and Dameron Hospital in Stockton was approved by a committee to the University of California Regents Thursday morning. The full board is expected to vote on the matter later today.

The independent 202-bed community hospital decided last year it needed a partner to ensure its long-term viability in the changing health care market. Dameron issued a request for proposals and has been in exclusive talks with UC Davis for months. (Robertson, Sacramento Business Journal 11/15/12)
