Sutter Health Ranks Tops in California for Quality Health Care
Date:4/1/2009

SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sutter Health network of doctors, hospitals and other health care service providers is California's top-ranking health system in health care quality according to the respected Lewin Group, an independent health care policy and research firm.

The Lewin Group produces rankings of America's 120 largest health systems. Its latest study uses quality and patient satisfaction data from 2007, as reported by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on its Hospital Compare Web site. Sutter Health was listed the best in California and 30th nationwide in the study.

"Findings of this respected quality study reflect the dedication of our hard-working employees - from clinical staff to those who work behind the scenes. It confirms that Sutter Health has further improved health care quality for patients," said Gordon Hunt, M.D., senior vice-president and chief medical officer for Sutter Health.

Providing quality care to patients is a top priority for Sutter Health. The not-for-profit network participates in a variety of voluntary as well as requisite programs that publicly report important patient satisfaction, cost, utilization and quality of care measures.

Sutter affiliates also work together on a number of clinical initiatives that help to further improve patient care. These initiatives draw upon evidence-based medicine and include using established guidelines, standardized protocols and clinical outcome goals to advance quality.

"Although we are extremely proud of our placement, we're always looking for ways to do better - to continue to improve care, increase safety and provide better outcomes for the patients we serve," added Dr. Hunt.
