Keeping Our Care Connected.

Sutter Health keeps our care connected through our regionally integrated network, providing high-quality, affordable healthcare to meet the unique and diverse needs of the communities we serve. This is our not-for-profit mission at work, all while operating in the competitive and expensive Northern California region.

By integrating care throughout our footprint, Sutter Health is continuously improving the quality and efficiency of the care we provide to our more than 3 million patients. By streamlining patient services and driving better health outcomes, we can lower the total cost of care for both our patients and payors.

Whether it’s easier navigation between providers, personalized attention, or shared information, Sutter Health’s integrated network makes the benefits of coordinated care possible.


Sutter Health’s integrated network and commitment to continuous improvement has put us ahead of other hospitals in California and nationwide on 6 out of 6 clinical quality measures – ultimately helping patients get healthier faster while lowering the total cost of care.


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.


Sutter Health drives affordability across its integrated network through a focus on reducing the average total cost of care by promoting better health outcomes and streamlining care and services to lower costs. Both are made possible by the benefits of our interconnected system and help keep our costs to patients and payors down while making care more affordable over time. In fact, Sutter’s average total cost of care trended 8% below comparable Northern California hospitals from 2008 to 2017.


Sutter Health’s integrated network invests heavily in research and pilot programs that fuel advancements in our patients' care and in medical research across the country. We share these innovations and best practices across our connected model of care. This leads to better health outcomes for our patients today and progress toward cures for generations to come.
