Sutter Health invests $11.5M in patient lifts
Sacramento Business Journal

Sutter Health will invest $11.5 million to install overhead patient lifts at 19 intensive care units and acute rehabilitation centers across its network, including four hospitals in the Sacramento region.

The investment, announced Thursday, follows a similar amount spent three years to install overhead lifts at 21 sites. Overhead patient lifts make repositioning and moving patients easier, safer and less strenuous for caregivers.
