Sacramento Bee

Community health provider The Effort’s newest clinic will be named after a longtime area medical leader.

The Tom Gagen Community Health Clinic will open inside Mercy Housing’s affordable housing development at Seventh and H streets in downtown Sacramento. The 5,000-square-foot clinic and the eight-story downtown development are slated to open in the fall of 2012.

Gagen served 11 years as chief executive officer of Sutter Medical Center before announcing his retirement earlier this year.
