The Sutter Health Matching Capital Matching Grant Program encourages Sutter affiliates to apply for challenge grants that can only be received if the affiliate meets a specific fundraising goal within a certain period of time. Over the past several years, Sutter Lakeside Hospital has reached out to Lake County for their support in funding healthcare equipment and programs, and Sutter Health has matched donors dollar-for-dollar up to the matching grant amount.
- Women’s Imaging Equipment — In 2012, donors joined together to raise $55,000 to purchase a Mammatome Breast Biopsy System and a GE Lunar Prodigy DexaScanner for the Women’s Imaging Department. In late summer of 2013, Lake County women can have their breast biopsies performed under either MRI or ultrasound technology on an outpatient procedure right here at Sutter Lakeside! Patients of all ages can have a Dexascan performed to assess bone loss, an important diagnostic test that can help prevent fractures before they begin.
- Mobility Park — Thanks to the generosity of our donors in 2011, the Sutter Lakeside Hospital Foundation met Sutter’s matching grant challenge to raise $110,000 for a new Mobility Park. Now our rehab patients have a place to master the physical challenges they face in the real world in a supervised outdoor environment. We invite you to come and take a look at one of the prettiest parts of Sutter Lakeside’s campus
- Stroke Telemedicine — Lake County donors raised $78,000, which was coupled with a Sutter Health $78,000 matching grant to purchase Stroke Telemedicine equipment. Now, our physicians work with a specialized team of stroke doctors at Sutter’s California Pacific Medical Center’s Neuroscience Institute to diagnose and treat stroke patients right here at Sutter Lakeside.
