Auburn hospital to close birthing unit
Sacramento Bee

The maternity ward at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital is a quiet place – just one baby arrives each day, on average.

Twenty miles away, however, Sutter Roseville Medical Center delivers thousands of newborns a year for the young families who flocked to booming South Placer County in the past decade.

As a result, Sutter Health announced Tuesday it would end labor and delivery services at Sutter Auburn. Auburn-area subscribers will be sent to Roseville instead.
