Sutter Amador Hospital CEO to Retire, Leaving Legacy of Community Health Excellence

Posted on Jan 16, 2019 in Carousel, Expanding Access, Scroll Images, Sutter Amador Hospital, Sutter Medical Foundation, Transformation, Uncategorized

JACKSON, Calif. – Anne Platt is retiring March 1 as CEO of Sutter Amador Hospital after 14 years presiding over unprecedented expansions and improvements to the medical campus and the local healthcare community. Replacing her is Tom Dickson, who has led some of Arizona’s most respected hospitals and has a proven record for excellence in patient care. His first day at Sutter Amador Hospital is Feb. 11.

Sutter Amador Hospital CEO Anne Platt is retiring after 14 years of leading several expansions in medical services for the Gold Country communities.

“Sutter really struck gold when Anne was recruited to take the helm of Sutter Amador Hospital,” said Grant Davies, CEO of Sutter Valley Area Hospitals. “She worked hard to bring many advanced medical services to the Gold Country and was a major contributor to the health and well-being of the community. It was tough to find someone who can ably fill her shoes as CEO, but we are confident that Tom is up to the task of carrying on Anne’s legacy.”

When Platt arrived in 2005, Sutter Amador was a beautiful, newly constructed, small rural hospital with limited resources for patients in several medical specialties. She leaves her post having greatly advanced the hospital — adding services that allow residents to receive care locally instead of having to leave the county.

“I care deeply about the health of our residents and the community, but none of this could have been accomplished without the support and generosity of the greater Jackson community and the contributions of an amazing staff of medical professionals,” Platt said. “It has been a pleasure to work with so many to ensure that our residents get the best healthcare right in their own backyard.”    Read More
