Sutter Medical Center names next CEO
Sacramento Bee

A new leader will take over Sutter Medical Center Sacramento in September in a move that paves the way for Chief Executive Officer Tom Gagen’s retirement in early 2012.

Carrie Owen Plietz was named chief executive officer of Sutter Medical Center effective Sept. 1, officials announced Thursday.

She will lead Sutter General and Sutter Memorial Hospital, the medical group’s two acute-care facilities, along with the Sutter Center for Psychiatry and its Sutter Oaks Midtown skilled nursing facility.
