A new program designed to cut down on unnecessary emergency room visits at Sutter Solano Medical Center has been announced by officials of the hospital and La Clínica, its partner in the enterprise. Modeled after a program at Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, the Emergency Department Navigator Program provides onsite patient advocates for emergency room visitors, officials said.

The Vallejo pilot program runs 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and is staffed from La Clínica, a federally qualified health center.
