Sutter practices moving patients to new hospital
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Sutter Medical Center conducted a drill Wednesday in Santa Rosa to practice moving patients from its old hospital on Chanate Road to its new facility next to Wells Fargo Center for the Arts. While there were a few hurdles along the way, hospital officials said the mock move went smoothly overall.

Nursing students from Sonoma State University played the roles of six patients and were transported by ambulance to the new hospital, giving Sutter a chance to test its procedures and iron out any wrinkles before the real move takes place next week.
