A Message from Sutter Health President & CEO Sarah Krevans and Sutter Health Chief Quality & Safety Officer William Isenberg, M.D., Ph.D.

Sutter Health President and CEO Sarah Krevans

While the holidays may look and feel different this year, we are thankful that across Sutter Health we have come together with strength and resilience to persevere through these unprecedented times. We appreciate the compassion and excellence of our staff as we serve and comfort those who turn to us for medical care and guidance.

With COVID-19 surging in most parts of the country, and 94 percent of California now in our state’s most restrictive tier, we join our state’s public health officials and encourage people to stay home and avoid traveling outside of their local region to help reduce the risk of spreading the virus. While breaking with family traditions may be hard, we encourage you to make these holidays a season to remember in new and different ways. State officials are also offering tips and ideas on how to celebrate safely.

Sutter Health Chief Quality & Safety Officer William Isenberg, M.D., Ph.D.

Safety is Sutter Health’s top priority, and, as we have done all year, we are closely monitoring the steep increase in COVID-19 infections. We’re also working closely with state officials to coordinate our response. At this time, our hospitals have capacity to care for patients with COVID-19 and for those who do not. We also have adequate supplies of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our teams. Additionally, we have joined with approximately 100 other hospitals and health systems across the U.S. in the new “Mask Up” campaign, which encourages people to wear facemasks—one of the best tools we have for slowing the spread of COVID-19.

May you and your loved ones stay safe and well. Happy Thanksgiving.
