Forget orange. Pink is the new macho color as construction crews put the finishing touches on the new Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center.
In an effort to increase breast cancer awareness, KHS&S Suspended Ceiling Installer Jonny “T-Bar” Nelson and his granddaughter have produced plain and tie-dye pink shirts, and Nelson and other personnel have been wearing these shirts to work every Wednesday.
“I started doing this in September (2013) when my 13-year-old granddaughter, Aria, started coming into her womanhood and learning about the risks of breast cancer,” Nelson said. “My daughter – Aria’s mother – and I decided it would be a good idea to turn this serious issue into a fun art project.”
The high-visibility pink shirts replace the workers’ typical orange or lime shirts. Each shirt can take Nelson and his granddaughter up to five hours to produce and are designed in a 1960s-era style. Read More about Pink Is the New Orange During Hospital Construction
The bridge connecting the Buhler Specialty Pavilion and the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center is mostly complete and is awaiting for the time when Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento is ready to begin equipment moves and staff training in the new hospital, which is expected during the summer. The new, expanded campus is scheduled to open next winter.
Hospitalists, residents and other physicians routinely are “on call” at the hospital and need a place to sleep and relax on campus during down times so they can be alert and at their best when called into action. The stereotypical on-call sleeping arrangement, as typified on TV shows, is a crammed cubbyhole that is about as comfortable as an Army barrack.
But at the expanded Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento campus, on-call physicians will get the proper rest they need in the snazzy new Physician On-Call Suite. Located in Suite 360 of the Fort Sutter Medical Complex, it opened March 6. Read More about Physician On-Call Suite Opens in Fort Sutter Medical Complex
When the new Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center opens, it will make history as one of the most advanced and comprehensive hospitals for the care of mothers, babies and kids in the nation. And right next door is a piece of Sacramento history honored by our nation.
The Old Tavern, which Sutter Health has owned since 1967, has been part of Sacramento’s history for 165 years and is on the National Register of Historic Buildings. A mixture of architectural styles prevalent in Sacramento construction in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Old Tavern is separated only by a driveway from the strikingly modern Women’s and Children’s Center.

In 1940, a Sacramento city beautification project led to the renaming of M Street. Since the California State Capitol and its park are located in the middle of M Street, the city renamed it Capitol Avenue, distinguishing it from the bland alphabet- and numeral-named streets in the heart of the city. It also makes it easier for visitors to find the state Capitol.
When the expanded Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento campus opens next winter, it will be christened with a new, more distinguished address: 2825 Capitol Ave. That address is for both the new Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center and Sutter General Hospital, which will be renamed the Ose Adams Medical Pavilion.

A large display showing the future of the Sutter Memorial Hospital site has been installed near the hospital’s main elevators on the first floor. The display shows the proposed neighborhood of up to 125 homes, a small mixed-use building, plus the many engaging park areas. Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento partnered with StoneBridge Properties to conceptualize and entitle the redevelopment, referred to as Sutter Park. Sutter Park was designed with much community feedback and contributes to the livability and character of the surrounding neighborhood.
