Emergency Room in Lodi
Emergencies happen, please don’t delay your care
We are always there in your time of crisis. Our emergency rooms are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week with physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and emergency care nurses. Our ER staff provides quick and efficient access to care for you or your family members.
If you or a loved one is experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency, please call 9-1-1 and ask to be taken to your nearest hospital.
Is the emergency room safe?
Our hospitals are safe, operational and prepared to handle health emergencies as well as coronavirus cases. Adventist Health isolates suspected COVID-19 patients to keep our other patients and healthcare professionals safe.
We are confident we can effectively care for an infected patient with little risk to our other patients, and Adventist Health closely follows CDC protocols and works with local public health departments to ensure our hospitals and clinics are safe and ready when emergencies happen.
Don’t delay your care
During this time of uncertainty, many are apprehensive to visit a hospital and don’t want to overwhelm healthcare resources. But don’t delay care when something urgent comes up—we have the resources we need and are prepared and available to care for you and your family.
"I got there at midnight. I had the best care. They were right there. They took me immediately for x-rays. I have never received such amazing treatment in such a timely manner. I was out within two hours. Everybody went through everything with me. I will always, always, always refer anybody to Lodi Memorial Hospital. You guys did an amazing, excellent job. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
How to navigate an ER visit during COVID-19
The team at Adventist Health Lodi Memorial is here for you. To ensure your safety we have changed the way patients access the Emergency Department. If you have a life-threatening illness, please call 9-1-1. For all other reasons please drive up to the entrance on Fairmont Ave. Be sure to wear a mask and remain in your vehicle. Medical caregivers will screen you in your vehicle and guide you to the appropriate care setting for your condition.
Adventist Health Lodi Memorial is not a free COVID-19 testing site. We do administer the COVID-19 test through our Emergency Department (ED); however, it is considered an ED visit and will be billed accordingly.
If you are having symptoms of COVID-19 and would still like to be seen knowing that your visit will be treated as a regular ED visit, please proceed to our Emergency Department for medical care and be prepared to show your ID and insurance card.
If you’re looking to be tested for free without having to go through our ED process or obtaining a doctor’s order, San Joaquin County offers free COVID-19 testing, by appointment, through the following programs:
- Project Baseline COVID-19 Testing Program - French Camp
- Near San Joaquin General Hospital, just off Interstate 5
- Appointments made online at ProjectBaseline.com
- This test is free
- OptumServe Federal Health Testing Program - Lodi
