Giving Back to Communities
Health and its affiliates proudly support many local organizations across Northern California. Together, we're making a difference in creating healthier communities.
Sutter Health’s mission extends beyond the walls of our care facilities. We put our mission into action by investing in school-based clinics, mobile clinics, transportation services, language assistance, prevention and wellness strategies and much more.
The following is a small sample of the types of programs focused on meeting a variety of community needs. Additional programs can be found at each of our hospital and medical foundation Web sites. Links to the sites are located off Sutter Health’s home page.
