The Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento ExpansionNavigation
To celebrate our East Sacramento legacy and all the memories from the past 75+ years, we have produced a commemorative tile – replicating the seafoam green tiles many of us remember from Sutter Memorial Hospital’s past. Tiles are $25 and include shipping. Order now.
We are extremely pleased to announce that Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento officially moved our first patients into the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center (WCC) yesterday (July 22)! Following a visit from the California Department of Public Health this morning and subsequent approval, we moved our medical ICU units to new space on the 4th Floor of WCC.
The rest of the WCC will be occupied when we move Sutter Memorial Hospital on Saturday, Aug. 8.
If you missed the opportunity to tour our new facility during Community Day, we have a new way for you to view our campus.
If you have Google Chrome, please view our YouTube playlist of all tours.
Join us for the “grand unbundling” of the new Sutter Medical Center campus where we will celebrate our 90 year history, including the birth of more than 345,000 babies, and the next generation of care.

As the Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento midtown expansion project nears completion, final street improvements with the City of Sacramento are underway and are scheduled to continue through May 21. The area of work extends from K Street to Capitol Avenue between 27th and 29th streets. It involves lowering manholes, grinding, repairing, overlaying and paving, sealing and striping.
Depending on the work to be completed, there will be traffic controls in place that include partial to full lane closures, as well as street closures. The overlaying and paving will occur the second week in the evenings and overnight (6 p.m. to 6 a.m.) due to the possibility of street closures. There is noise from grinding and trucks, as well as smells from paving and sealing associated with this work.
Here is the day-to-day schedule of street activities: Read More about Lane Closures Planned as Final Street Improvements Begin
Because the new acute-care facility is a half-block distance from the Capital City Freeway, the sign can be seen by travelers and commuters.
The signage matches the rebranding that the Sutter Health network of hospitals, doctors and medical foundations undertook in the past couple of years, with the new Plus logo and the name of the facility — Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento — underneath the bolder Sutter Health name.

During his time off, Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento Anesthesiologist Hal Humphreys, M.D., likes to soar among the clouds in his Cessna 182. He recently took Senior Media Producer John Milne up to take photos and video. John then matched some of the shots to ones he took before the SMCS expansion construction began. The photos show what Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson called “a model in-fill project.” The existing Sutter buildings on the left are Sutter General Hospital, Sutter Cancer Center (now called the Buhler Specialty Pavilion) and the Old Tavern. On the right side of each set of photos includes the addition of the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center and the Sutter Capitol Pavilion, along with a series of bridges or spanning structures connecting the entire campus.
