North Bay Business Journal

Sutter Health, which operates a number of North Bay hospitals and other care services, has filed plans with the state to launch its own health maintenance organization by 2014 and aims to offer a commercial health plan to employer groups. “Offering a health plan enables us to partner directly with patients to manage their total health needs, including their ongoing care experience and the total quality and cost of their care,” said Pat Fry, president and chief executive officer of the Sacramento-based nonprofit health system.
