Ken is an active member of the Fairmont Seventh-Day Adventist Church and for many years he’s held leadership roles with community organizations including Lodi Memorial Hospital’s board and executive committee, Lodi Lions Club, Lodi Academy and Lodi Elementary. He’s been active in the California Association of Health Facilities (CAHF) and received its Distinguished Service Award for his dedication to the long-term care profession.
