HPSJ salutes San Joaquin General Hospital as now one of only three local hospitals to earn the coveted baby-friendly designation (Health Plan Alliance, June 1, 2016)
San Joaquin General Hospital (SJGH) has now capped a decade-long journey to be recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) as a Baby-Friendly Hospital. SJGH recently joined the only two other San Joaquin County hospitals to have earned this designation: Dignity Health – St. Joseph’s Medical Center (awarded in 2012) and Lodi Memorial Hospital (awarded in 2014). Out of the eight counties of California’s Central Valley, San Joaquin County is one of only two to be home to Baby-Friendly hospitals; only 81 California hospitals have earned this designation.
