Sutter Health Network Donates $150,000 to Aid Victims of San Bruno Fire
Date:9/10/2010

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Sutter Health today announced a donation of $100,000 to the Bay Area Chapter of the American Red Cross to aid in relief efforts following a destructive fire in San Bruno that left many families without food and shelter. The donation is made on behalf of the Northern California network's employees, physicians and volunteers and is in addition to $50,000 generously donated by Sutter-affiliated California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC).

"We are deeply saddened by this tragic event affecting many local families, including some employees within our network," said Pat Fry, Sutter Health president and CEO. "Many of our network's doctors and other caregivers also call the Bay Area home. There is no question that we will donate what we can to support our community, patients and families in this time of great need."

Located approximately six miles from the fire, Sutter-affiliated Mills-Peninsula Health Services treated 10 people for minor injuries following the explosion. No patients were admitted to the hospital as a result of injuries from the fire. CPMC in San Francisco treated patients who were diverted from nearby hospitals.

Sutter Health physicians, hospitals and other health care service providers share a common commitment to creating healthier communities through programs and services that respond to public needs. In 2009, the not-for-profit network invested $667 million in care and services for the poor and underserved.
