02/19/2020 - James Dalton Medical Office Completed in Angels Camp! Ribbon Cutting & Dedication Feb. 19th!
Angels Camp, CA...Hometown health care is now state-of-the-art with completion of the James Dalton Medical Office. The new facility is part of Mark Twain Medical Center’s network of clinics and specialty centers serving Calaveras County communities. The facility at 590 Stanislaus Street has been approved for licensing by the State of California and will welcome its first patients on February 13, 2020. “This is a community effort,” says Doug Archer, President and CEO of MTMC. “It has taken over ten years to make this a reality and it would not have happened without the perseverance of the Mark Twain Medical Center Foundation. Through its generous donors, the Foundation has contributed $2.6 million for the $7.5 million project.”



“The power of caring for one another should never be overlooked,” he adds. “This project illustrates the power of friends and neighbors working together to better their community.”

“It is fitting that the facility is named for the late James Dalton, long-time Foundation board member with a vision for expanding local health care services. The Dalton Family are generous donors to this project.”
As a comprehensive health care clinic services will include primary care, including women and pediatric services, along with orthopedics, tele-psychiatrics, counseling services, laboratory and diagnostic imaging.

“The James Dalton Medical Office will offer residents of Angels Camp and neighboring communities on the Highway 4 corridor the opportunity to establish local health care relationships with primary care physicians,” Archer notes. “That is a key first step in achieving and maintaining good health.”
