Sutter project shapes up
Sacramento Bee

The $724 million expansion of Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, is moving forward at an indomitable clip – despite some early setbacks and a price tag that has ballooned by 60 percent since work began on the massive midtown project five years ago.

“This is like pushing a boulder up a hill; there’s so much hard work,” said Larry Maas, assistant administrator of the multi-pronged venture, which includes new services and renovations at Sutter General Hospital in midtown Sacramento, construction of the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center across the street and several other substantial medical and community improvements.
