Sutter’s on the Move
Sacramento Magazine

A patient who wakes up in Sutter Memorial Hospital on the morning of Saturday, Aug. 8, will fall asleep that night in the new $812 million Sutter Medical Center in midtown. Before he does, however, he’ll have been part of an extraordinary process.

The entire contents of Sutter Memorial, including equipment and an estimated 180 patients, ranging from infants in neonatal intensive care to elderly adults, will be moved from 5151 F St. to 2825 Capitol Ave.—all in a single day. It’s a marvel of logistical planning that’s been in the works for years.
