March of Dimes PartnershipEach year, we work side-by-side with organizations to provide technical assistance, expertise and fundraising support. In 2013, Sutter Health employees across our health care system raised more than $581,000 in 2013 to support March of Dimes research and programs to prevent premature births and improve the health of mothers and their babies. The achievement made our not-for-profit network the top health care fundraising team for the March of Dimes nationwide for the fourth consecutive year. Over the past 16 years, our employees have raised more than $6 million for the March of Dimes.
Baseball Field Makeover
Grant Union High School’s varsity baseball field has been transformed into a "field of dreams" by a Sutter Health donation and volunteers from the Sacramento River Cats, Sutter Health, Grant Union High School, Twin Rivers Unified School District and the Del Paso Heights community.
