Construction is progressing on our campus and yesterday we hit another milestone – the opening of the new valet and drive between the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s & Children’s Center and the Buhler Building/Sutter Cancer Center. This valet currently serves patients with appointments at the Buhler Building/Sutter Cancer Center and when our new campus opens in 2015 it will be the new access point for our whole campus.
The new entrance will be on Capitol Avenue between 28th and 29th streets. The entrance is easily accessible to westbound traffic on Capitol Avenue. Vehicles should not turn left into the drive, but instead approach the entrance going toward downtown.

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.
