Better Health Through Integrated Care

Sutter is a not-for-profit, regionally integrated network operating in Northern California’s competitive healthcare market. We keep our care connected through our integrated network, providing access to high quality, affordable healthcare to meet the diverse needs of the patients and communities we serve. 

Integrated healthcare networks like Sutter benefit patients and communities by:

Establishing a more user-friendly healthcare system

Delivering on high quality, patient-centered care

Achieving healthier outcomes that help lower the average total cost of care over time for patient populations

It’s through this integrated approach that we’re able to coordinate medical care and healthcare services from one caregiver or facility to another and make early and substantial investments in technologies like electronic health records, electronic intensive care units and telehealth.

The integrated nature of our health system was essential during the pandemic – enabling us to use the full breadth of the network to work together to serve patients. We were able to share clinical information quickly and efficiently about treatment protocols; we secured and distributed critical protective equipment to our hospitals throughout Northern California; and we were able to immediately scale and maintain our critical care capacity. The integration of our network made our initial response successful and continues to enable our care teams to provide high quality safe care to our patients as the virus and the pandemic evolve."
