Two S.J. hospitals honored by peers

Two hospitals in San Joaquin County are among eight recognized by their peers as top performers that significantly reduced hospital acquired infections, sepsis mortality and the number of early elective deliveries at their facilities.

Such accomplishments mean that hundreds of people had better health outcomes and millions of dollars in health care costs were avoided, according to the Hospital Council of Northern and Central California that presented the awards to St. Joseph’s Medical Center of Stockton and Sutter Tracy Community Hospital.
