A Message from Nicholas Tejeda, CEO 
 

On behalf of our outstanding and dedicated team of employees, physicians and volunteers, I welcome you to Doctors Hospital of Manteca website.  This website is designed to provide you with essential information regarding our facility and the clinical services we provide. 

For over 50 years Doctors Hospital of Manteca has provided superb clinical care to patients in the Central Valley.  This care is deeply rooted in our belief that each of our patients expects and deserves to be treated in the same manner we would want for our own families and loved ones. 

To this end, Doctors Hospital of Manteca provides a broad range of services in collaboration with an exceptional Medical Staff, many of whom are Board Certified in their specific specialty.  Our Emergency Department serves more than 28,000 patients every year and has recently implemented a series of improvements focused on our Senior population.  Our Center for Orthopedics offers comprehensive orthopedic services such as joint replacement including MAKOplasty robotic-assisted knee and hip surgery, anterior hip replacement, spine surgery, and podiatry.  Our Breast Center, staffed by a nurse navigator, provides care for over 3,500 women annually.  The Manteca Imaging Center provides the latest imaging technology including PET/CT and Open MRI, as well as walk-in x-ray and outpatient lab draw services.  In total, there are over 4,000 hospital admissions and 58,000 outpatient visits at Doctors Hospital of Manteca every year.

We strive to deliver these services with the highest level of clinical quality.  That is why we are honored to be fully accredited by the Joint Commission, the premier accrediting body for hospitals in the United States.  Moreover, Doctors Hospital of Manteca has earned an “A” ranking by The Leapfrog Group, a national organization that rates hospital safety and quality.  The American College of Surgeons has accredited our Weight Loss Surgery Program as a Level 2 facility, a designation that demonstrates our hospital’s commitment to delivering the highest quality care for bariatric surgery patients.  Moreover, the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers Program has recognized Doctors Hospital of Manteca as a Certified Quality Breast Center.

Finally, we are proud of the convenience we are able to offer to our community.  Whether in Stockton, Tracy or Manteca, our hospital is easily accessible off of Highway 99.  We offer the InQuicker Emergency Room Check-In service that allows patients to “hold their place online” and relax at home until the designated appointment time.  In addition, we recently completed a renovation of the Emergency Room waiting area that improves comfort, safety and privacy for our patients.

What does all of this mean?  It means that our patients will receive exceptional clinical care and compassionate customer service from a team of well-trained, highly-skilled clinicians who have access to the latest medical technology.  This care and service will be delivered with a sincere and humble appreciation for the critical role we play in the lives of our patients and our community.

 Sincerely,

 Nicholas Tejeda, MHA, FACHE
