Lake County Record-Bee

Sutter Lakeside Hospital partnered with Surgical Affiliates Management Group (SAMG) to bring the highest level of orthopedic care to Lake County residents. The hospitalist group formed in 1996 and has since produced years of outstanding results, such as improving patient outcomes, reducing unnecessary readmissions and cutting costs.

Dr. Leon Owens, M.D., president and CEO of SAMG, manages the group. Owens developed the model and has had significant experience with success at other facilities. He uses a structured approach for consistency and quality to provide optimal service.
