BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Adventist Health Kern County announced they are staying within the Adventist Health family and naming Daniel Wolcott as their new president.

Wolcott will lead and support the three Adventist Health Kern County hospitals in Bakersfield, Tehachapi and Delano, working closely with Adventist Health Delano President David Butler.

“I have been blessed to serve our San Joaquin County teams and look forward to joining the Kern County community,” says Wolcott.

Staying within the Adventist Health family, Wolcott comes from Adventist Health Lodi Memorial and Dameron Hospital in Stockton. Scott Reiner, Adventist Health CEO said during his tenure at Lodi, Wolcott helped launch an impressive orthopedic program and was instrumental in developing a new cancer center that is currently under construction.

“Daniel is a dynamic leader with a passion for quality, innovation and excellence,” said Reiner. “I am confident he has the vision to expand care and services for our communities.”

Wolcott will officially take over Adventist Health Kern on Dec. 1.
