Half of New Sutter General Hospital Lobby to Premiere
The new look of the Sutter General Hospital main entrance and lobby will premiere Wednesday, July 31, when the revolving door will stop spinning for a couple of months while construction crews remodel the second half of the hospital lobby.
New flooring and registration desks have been constructed during the first phase of the lobby remodel project, and on July 31 all patients and visitors will enter Sutter General Hospital through a new, handicap-accessible door a few feet from the revolving door. Meanwhile, the other half of the hospital lobby will be receiving new flooring and a desk, too, which will take up to eight weeks to complete. Signage will point the direction to registration and the elevators.
The first-floor restrooms will not be accessible during this phase of the remodel; public restrooms will still be available on the second floor.
Upon completion of the Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento expansion project next year, the Sutter General lobby will become the waiting area for the expanded Emergency Department on the first floor of the hospital, which will then be known as the Ose Adams Medical Pavilion. All other inpatient registrations will go through the new Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center. The two hospitals will be seamlessly linked by the three-story spanning structure over L Street.
In addition, Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento Human Resources Department and Security have moved into stylish new digs in the Old Tavern, Suite 150, right next to Biba’s restaurant. For now, the HR staff that was located on the second floor of Sutter General Hospital has moved in, while some staff still remains at Sutter Memorial Hospital until the big move day in fall 2014.
