Sutter Buys Land to Expand Medical Facility
By Sarah Arnquist
FAIRFIELD - Sutter Regional Medical Foundation announced Monday the purchase of 11.2 acres from Anheuser-Busch for $3.9 million, on which it plans to build additional medical offices at its Fairfield medical campus near Highway 12.
Sutter intends to meet the growing needs in Solano County, one of the fastest-growing counties in Northern California, said John Ray, the Foundation's chief executive.
"This land acquisition will allow us to develop the facilities and services necessary to meet the needs of our growing community into the future with the level of technology and service our patients expect and deserve," Ray said.
Sutter Regional Medical Foundation is a locally governed and managed affiliate of Sutter Health, a not-for-profit physician and hospital network in Northern California. The Foundation built a $35 million medical office, outpatient surgery and diagnostic imaging center in 2004 on Chadbourne Road near Highway 12. Monday's land acquisition is part of the Foundation's $42.5 million Solano County expansion plan.
The Solano Regional Medical Group, the county's largest multi-specialty group practice and a Foundation affiliate, plans to move from its current 20-year-old facility on Empire and Pennsylvania streets to the new medical building by fall of 2006.
The Foundation leases the building on Empire Street, and Ray said he is unsure what will happen to it when doctors move in 2006.
The Foundation now has 66 physicians, nurse practitioners and physician's assistants. It hopes to bring 24 new physician members to Solano County by 2010. Ray said the Foundation must have state-of-the-art facilities to attract new physicians and patients.
Health industry executives from Kaiser Permanente and NorthBay Healthcare also have multi-million dollar expansion plans for Solano County.
The projections show that this county will continue growing, and the population here is getting older too, Ray said.
"The need for health care services is also going to continue to grow," he said.
