street improvement mapAs 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

Sutter Health Sign Goes Up on New Women’s and Children’s Center

ALWCC 4_17 aThe Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento sign was installed today on the left side of the top level of the new Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center by construction workers.

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. Read More

A look at the expanded campus looking southwest. At the top of the recent photo you can see the Sutter Community Garage.

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.

Old West Meets Modern Hospital

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 new Anderson Lucchetti Women's and Children's Center towers over the Old Tavern, one of the oldest buildings in Sacramento.

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.

A New Capitol Address for Expanded Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento

Posted by on Jan 15, 2014 | 0 comments

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.
