Sutter to close Auburn birthing center
Sacramento Bee

The Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital Family Birthing Center will be closed, and all inpatient labor/delivery services will be done at Sutter Roseville Medical Center, it was announced today.

The Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region board of directors said the facility in Auburn will continue to oversee child deliveries until a closure plan is complete.

The board cited multiple reasons for its action: a “near-constant turnover of obstetricians in Auburn” over the past decade, an aging population and numerous pregnant women in the Auburn area choosing to deliver outside of the community.
