San Joaquin General to replace outdated sterilizer equipment
Lodi News-Sentinel

The San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors agreed to spend $250,000 to replace outdated equipment needed to sterilize items used for surgery and maternity procedures at San Joaquin General Hospital. The need is so acute that the Board of Supervisors declared a state of emergency on Tuesday to exempt the county from the competitive bid process and having to get approval by public works. The board instead awarded the contract to a company known as Belimed.
