Sutter Medical Center Breaks Ground on Historic Women's and Children's Center
Date:10/13/2008

New facility will offer the highest level of neonatal, pediatric and

maternity services

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- More than a dozen children born or treated at Sutter Memorial Hospital, Sutter officials and community leaders "broke sand" today in a giant sandbox on the site where Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento's state-of-the-art Anderson Lucchetti Women's and Children's Center will soon stand in 2011.

"When this facility opens, it will be among the finest hospitals for birthing and children's services in the state. The new hospital combines the renowned expertise and reputation of Sutter Memorial Hospital with the latest and best technology in a unique atmosphere that will promote healing," said Tom Gagen, CEO of Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento. "Who better to celebrate the construction of this new hospital with a ceremonial 'sand-breaking' than the parents and children who have been the beneficiaries of Sutter Memorial's long history of world-class service?"

The 242-bed Anderson Lucchetti Women's and Children's Center will be an eight-story, 395,241-square-foot building located across L Street from the Ose Adams Medical Pavilion (currently known as Sutter General Hospital) and to the east of the existing Sutter Cancer Center and Old Tavern. It will replace Sutter Memorial Hospital, located at 5151 F St., the other acute-care facility under the SMCS umbrella.

At the new Anderson Lucchetti Women's and Children's Center, patients and their families will obtain the highest level of neonatal and pediatric intensive care services, pediatric cardiac care, pediatric neurosurgery services, pediatric cancer services, and high-risk and conventional maternity services. This facility will also feature a life-saving helistop atop the building adjacent to the Capital City Freeway. The Anderson Lucchetti Women's and Children's Center will integrate "healing arts" alongside traditional care offered, most notably through performances from the B Street Theatre's Children's Theatre of California.

"Sutter Memorial Hospital has a solid reputation within the region of delivering quality neonatal, pediatric and maternity services," said Gregory Janos, M.D., medical director of Children's Services. "With this new center, we will offer patients a higher level of care in a state-of-the-art facility that is warm, inviting and comfortable for them, as well as their family and friends."

The family of the late Fred Anderson, founder of Pacific Coast Building Products Inc., contributed $18 million to the Sutter Medical Center Foundation for construction of the Anderson Lucchetti Women's and Children's Center. The Anderson Lucchetti contribution ranks as the single largest gift from an individual family to a capital campaign in the greater Sacramento area. It also created the cornerstone for funding a new Sutter Medical Center midtown campus.

"The Sacramento region has been very good to our family. Its residents are friends, neighbors and customers," said Dave Lucchetti, Pacific Coast Building Products president and CEO. "Being a part of an opportunity to give families access to the highest quality of medical care is a wonderful thing. Sutter Health makes this opportunity a reality, and we are also appreciative to the Sutter organization for the care and service they've provided our family for the past 80 years."

The Anderson Lucchetti Women's and Children's Center and the Ose Adams Medical Pavilion will be seamlessly connected by a unique, three-story spanning structure across L Street that will also house clinical space. This spanning structure will blend the two facilities into one comprehensive medical campus. The Ose Adams Medical Pavilion is undergoing major enhancements, as well, which will bring the latest medical technology, electronic medical records, integrated art and primarily private rooms to five key service areas: adult and specialized pediatric emergency medicine, cardiovascular, neurosciences, orthopedics and oncology.

The medical center is the cornerstone of the midtown revitalization effort, which also includes a unique, live, three-stage theater complex featuring the Children's Theatre of California; retail and commercial space; the Sutter Brownstones, a model in-fill housing by Loftworks that contains 28 urban residences; and a parking garage for the community and hospital staff.

"We are so proud of this project, which is a shining example of well- integrated, community-focused planning," said Sarah Krevans, Sutter Health regional executive officer. "Alongside our new medical campus, there will be housing, entertainment, children's programs, restaurants and cultural elements. It is a perfect marriage of services in the heart of midtown Sacramento that will provide for this community and others well into the future."

"Sutter has been a big part of this community for 85 years. By choosing to build their new state-of-the-art medical facility within a mixed use campus, Sutter will anchor our burgeoning Midtown neighborhood for generations to come," added Steve Cohn, City of Sacramento Vice Mayor and District 3 Councilman. "This truly is a wonderful moment for Sutter and all of Sacramento."
