Sacramento Bee

Come early August, a fleet of ambulances will shuttle 180 patients from the venerable Sutter Memorial Hospital, built in the Great Depression and scheduled for demolition, to Sutter’s gleaming new hospital tower in midtown Sacramento.

All of the patients will be moved in one day, meaning an ambulance will leave the old hospital in East Sacramento with a patient and a team of caregivers about once every 8 minutes.
