Sutter Medical Center Makes New Strategic Plan

Sutter Medical Center Makes New Strategic Plan
By Sarah Arnquist

VALLEJO - Sutter Solano Medical Center recently updated its master plan and decided to seismically retrofit and modernize its existing campus at 300 Hospital Drive, hospital officials announced Tuesday.

That decision is part of the Sacramento-based Sutter Health network's announcement to invest $6.6 billion in the next 10 years in Northern California health services.

The nonprofit health care system will invest $1.7 billion more than it projected in 2002.

"We have a new strategic plan that envisions a health care landscape that looks much different than what we're used to," Sutter Health President and CEO Pat Fry said, in a press release.

The new plan devotes an additional $700 million to outpatient facilities like the medical offices on the second floor of Sutter's new cancer center in Vallejo.

Sutter Solano's updated master plan calls for close cooperation with the Sutter Regional Medical Foundation, said spokeswoman Rachael Albertson. The foundation operates medical offices in Vacaville, Fairfield, Rio Vista and Vallejo.

Sutter regional medical foundation physicians now also will occupy the second floor of the cancer building.

"That's one example of how we'll work more collaboratively," Albertson said.

Since 2002, Sutter has spent about $1 billion on new capital projects in Northern California, including a new cancer center in Vallejo and a comprehensive outpatient medical campus in Fairfield.
