Merced Sun-Star

Sutter Health has brought a new approach to care for people in advanced stages of chronic illness to the Northern San Joaquin Valley.

The program emphasizes care at home and is designed to prevent avoidable repeated hospital stays that are costly for government health programs such as Medicare. Such programs could become the model for millions of baby boomers who will rely on Medicare during their final phase of life.
