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.
