Sutter Health Donates Nearly $740,000 to Improve Community Health Care
Date:4/1/2008

SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Sutter Health, a family of physician organizations, not-for-profit hospitals, and other health care providers serving more than 100 communities in Northern California, recently made community benefit donations totaling $737,000 to three organizations dedicated to enhancing the health and well-being of Northern California communities.

Operation Access, an organization that secures and coordinates no-cost surgeries for uninsured residents in the greater Bay Area, will receive $300,000. The Effort, a Sacramento-based community clinic providing primary care, substance abuse treatment and mental health services for the underserved will receive $262,000. Receiving $175,000 will be the Perinatal Health Project, an innovative program to improve prenatal outcomes in disadvantaged Northern California communities by increasing birth weights and ultimately decreasing infant mortality for minority women.

"Operation Access, The Effort and the Perinatal Health Project have proven track records in improving access to care and addressing identified community needs," said Pat Fry, Sutter Health President and CEO. "We are proud to further invest in these and other programs to improve clinical outcomes, enhance patient safety and expand vital services to community members in 10 Northern California counties."

Sutter Health's grants are part of a multi-million-dollar commitment by the health care system to further pass along savings from tax-exempt bonds to health care consumers. As part of its 2007 application to the State Treasurer and the California Health Facilities Financing Authority for nearly $1 billion in tax-exempt bond financing earlier last year, Sutter Health committed to investing an additional $4.5 million over six years to help support community clinics in Northern California.
