NCMA staff recently was given a tour of the new Sutter of Santa Rosa Hospital next to the Wells Fargo Center. The facility, currently under construction, will open in 2014 and will bring with it a higher standard in healthcare to Sonoma County. The project is expected to cost the organization $284 million. The hospital will focus on the many advances, treatments and innovative technology in healthcare.
The new facility is built on a dynamic, green design that will result in a significant reduction in green house gas emissions. The hospital will also implement a water and energy conservation program. Upon completion, the new hospital is expected to be LEED Certified, the internally recognized green building certification system that uses a rigorous 100-point checklist. The building also will boast a seismically sound infrastructure, electronic health records and advanced imaging technology that will make the new Sutter Medical Center an unmatched state-of-the-art facility that will enhance 21st century healthcare in Sonoma County.
Project managers showed NCMA staff around the grounds where the efforts and progress made by the collaborating teams has reached a level that is worthy of Sutter Medical Centers’ high standards. You can see the facility, its progress and innovate design on Sutter Medical Center of Santa Rosa’s website.
