Sutter Health keeps our care connected so patients receive personal, coordinated and high-quality care across our integrated network.
Through integration, health systems like Sutter Health support the goals of the Affordable Care Act by continuously improving the quality and value of the healthcare we provide. This gives patients access to a full range of treatments and services—leading to healthier outcomes and lower cost of care.
We are a national leader in healthcare quality with the majority of hospitals and care facilities across Sutter Health’s integrated network outperforming state and national averages in many measures of quality.
Sutter Health provides access to healthcare across urban, suburban and rural communities by offering comprehensive patient services and quality health programs tailored to the diverse communities we serve.
Our integration and focus on best practices reduce medical complications, unnecessary procedures and hospital visits, which helps to lower cost of care for our patients and employers. We have kept rate increases to insurers to less than 3% annually since 2014, despite actual expenses for labor, facilities and technology increasing by an average of 6% each year. U.S. government statistics show average costs for care at Sutter are 7% lower than comparable Northern California hospitals and 17% lower than peer physician groups nationally.
