A hectic hospital moving day for moms, babies and Sutter staff (slideshow)
Sacramento Business Journal

Saturday was the last day of business for Sutter Memorial Hospital in East Sacramento, and emotions were mixed among patients and staff at the 77-year-old facility long known as Sacramento’s “baby hospital.” Ambulances transported Sutter Memorial’s remaining patients — 161 in all — two miles to Sutter’s midtown hospital campus, with new mothers going to the brand new Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center at 29th Street and Capitol Avenue. Hospital officials said the move was completed about 5:30 p.m. without mishap.
