FAIRFIELD - A third building at the Sutter Fairfield Medical Campus in the Busch Corporate Center is open and ready for patients.

The three-story, 69,000-square-foot building at 2720 Low Court debuted Monday, a Sutter press release said. It replaces the medical center on Empire Street near downtown Fairfield.

Sutter Regional Medical Foundation bought 11 acres for the project in 2005 and broke ground on the $20 million building a year ago. The building includes 60 offices for physicians and staff, with family practices on the first floor; pediatrics, internal medicine, oncology, rheumatology and cardiology on the second floor; and administrative offices on the third floor.

'Patients will enjoy the upscale feel and spaciousness, as well as the natural light in the waiting area,' said Carolyn Appenzeller, the foundation's chief operating officer, in a press release.

The new building will provide more room for patient care, the release stated. For example, cardiology will have another treadmill room and more equipment.

It is also near two existing buildings on the campus. One building houses the advanced diagnostic imaging center and ambulatory surgery center. The other houses the after-hours care clinic, surgical specialty offices and offices for obstetrics/gynecology, ophthalmology/optometry and urology. A covered walkway links the buildings.

'Community residents now have access to a full range of state-of-the-art health care services in one location,' the press release said.

About 30,000 Fairfield-Suisun area patients use Sutter.
