Large Grant Award for New Residency Program

This summer, we welcomed the first class of Emergency Medicine and Family Medicine residents. Each three year program will bring new physicians to the Central Valley and will help positively impact healthcare for generations to come.  Welcome!  

St. Joseph’s Medical Center was recently awarded a $2.53 million grant from the State of California to support its newly launched Graduate Medical Education (GME) Residency Program. The grant is a result of a collaborative effort between the GME program and St. Joseph’s Foundation of San Joaquin.

July 2018 brought our first class of residents in two initial programs, Emergency Medicine and Family Medicine. In 2019, we will introduce an Internal Medicine and OB/GYN program.  

These programs, and the entire development of the GME program at St. Joseph’s, is in keeping with our deeply held mission to serve the health care needs of the community and the greater Stockton area.

Heart & Valve Clinic nearing 100th TAVR procedure

Since the opening the Cardiac Hybrid Suite in June 2016,
St. Joseph’s highly specialized Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) team has performed 96 procedures. The oldest patient to receive a TAVR valve is 97, turning 100 years old next year. Close monitoring and follow up care has helped reduce visits to the ER and hospital readmissions.

Thank you to all of our generous donors that helped support the addition of the Cardiac Hybrid Suite, and those that continue to fund future advances to enable community physicians to treat their patients locally for complex heart disease.
