Families are made and forever changed at Sutter Health. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, several Sutter Health affiliates have added new equipment and services to make sure the arrival of every little one goes as smoothly as possible.
Sutter Davis Hospital
For the first time in our hospital’s history, we have embarked on an ambitious campaign over the last couple of years to expand and upgrade our facilities, focused on the most critical and heavily used services of the facility, including our Birthing Center. The hospital’s 28,000 square-foot expansion will increase access to the world class care we provide and improve the patient experience, elevating the health of this extraordinary community. We rely on generous donors and partners to help make this possible; ensuring that we have the funds to purchase equipment, invest in technologies, create innovative programs, and create expanded facilities for the community we serve is an expensive endeavor and it requires a significant capital investment—a capital investment that often we can only make with the support of the local community. The Close to Home Campaign has so far raised nearly $2 million of its $3 million dollar goal. People from all over our community have stepped up to partner with us because they know that for over 25 years, Sutter Davis Hospital has provided safe, high-quality care for the vibrant and unique community it serves. Our hospital is rooted in a culture of caring, proving every day that people should not have to travel far to receive exceptional healthcare.
Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento
Sutter Children’s Center: While most deliveries end perfectly, we make sure our state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Program at the Sutter Children’s Center has the most sophisticated equipment and supplies to improve outcomes and elevate comfort for our patients and their families. Our staff is dedicated to caring for children, and our pediatric specialists care for over 6,000 patients each year. Our unique approach is powered by science and inspired by children.
Donor dollars also funded lactation and parent education support for our new parents needing the extra support in those first few months of their child’s life.
Music therapy at Sophie’s Place: Thanks to donor support, pediatric music therapists can:
- Provide patients and their families a place to get away from the often stressful environment of their room and their unit, and instead offer a musical oasis where kids and their families can experience music in unlimited ways.
- Give opportunities for choice, control, and expression in the hospital where choice is often limited.
- Bring relief and diversion from long hours or sometimes days and weeks of waiting for updates, results, and progress.
