Dameron Hospital

About The Hospital

Dameron Hospital is a fully accredited, 202-bed community hospital offering a broad range of medical, surgical and health maintenance services for emergency and acute care.

Both not-for-profit and non-sectarian, Dameron exists solely to serve the healthcare needs of the community of Stockton, providing our neighbors with advanced technology and state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic equipment — as well as facilities for inpatient, outpatient and occupational patient care.

Our service areas include Cardiology, Emergency/Urgent Care, Radiology, Occupational Health. In addition, the Start of Life Center, our maternity department, delivers more babies than any other hospital in the county.

The History of Dameron Hospital

Dr. John Dameron founded Dameron Hospital in Stockton in 1912 with facilities for 20 patients. Ill health prompted him to sell the organization to a group of local doctors, staff and businessmen in 1925, and expansion in 1927 brought bed capacity up to 55.

The hospital was incorporated as Dameron Hospital Association in 1943, becoming an independent, not-for-profit medical facility governed by a seven-person board of directors and a 20-member board of membership.

Today we remain both independent and uncompromising in our approach to patient care – health care attitudes we’ve had from the very beginning. And with over 1,200 employees now on staff, we’ve gone from just serving the community to being a large part of it.

Our Services

Since opening our doors in 1912, Dameron Hospital has seen a great many changes in medicine. Today our services reflect the need to keep pace with the life-enhancing progress of medical practice.

Has it been a challenge? Of course. But it’s a challenge our medical, nursing and ancillary staff have continually met since the start.
