Adventist Health Sonora’s administrative team and medical staff hosted a tour Monday night to show off some of the latest investments that the hospital has made to expand and enhance medical services available locally to Tuolumne County residents.
Michelle Fuentes, president of Adventist Health Sonora, said the idea behind the tour was to give community members the opportunity to see and learn more about advancements the hospital has made that they likely otherwise wouldn’t encounter unless they were a patient.
We know we have a responsibility to provide high quality care for the people we share this community with as our county’s only hospital, and we don’t take it for granted that people will choose us just because we’re close by, hospital spokeswoman Jaquelyn Lugg said. Our goal with this event was to help demonstrate that our community can feel confident trusting us with their care.
Operations Executive Tyler Newton said the new equipment on display Monday night represented roughly $10 million of capital investment, adding that number doesn’t include the money the hospital has spent recruiting new providers and employees to operate it all.
