Posted on Sep 25, 2014 in Community Benefit, Transformation

Today, Sutter Health announced the donation of the former Warrack Hospital to Social Advocates for Youth (SAY) to advance their mission to provide education and housing for at-risk Sonoma County youth. This building will provide a tremendous resource for the support of local youth.

In 2008, Sutter Medical Center of Santa Rosa’s (SMCSR) Warrack Hospital building closed to consolidate services at the Chanate facility. This closure rendered the majority of the west side of the building vacant.

Overhead patient lifts improve employee and patient safety and clinical quality

Today, not-for-profit Sutter Health announces an $11.5 million commitment to install overhead patient lifts at 19 intensive care units and acute rehabilitation centers across its Northern California network. Three years ago, the network invested an initial $11.5 million to install overhead lifts at 21 affiliate sites.

Overhead patient lifts make repositioning and moving patients easier, safer and less strenuous for caregivers. Initial outcomes from Sutter-affiliated hospitals with overhead lifts show that employee injuries from lifting and repositioning patients have dropped by more than 50 percent since 2011. The not-for-profit network anticipates even better outcomes as it installs additional lifts and employees become more familiar with using them.
