Sutter Health will establish a major administrative service center in Roseville to support the network’s Northern California health care operations, it was announced last week. The center is expected to employ more than 1,000 administrative support staff over the next 18 months, with the workforce growing more over time.
“The new Sutter Health facility will provide a wide array of high-quality jobs for the region’s workers,” said Mike Rossi, Gov. Jerry Brown’s senior adviser on jobs and business development. “Sutter Health’s decision to establish their new administrative service center in California is a result of the state’s strengthening economy and the access to a highly skilled workforce.”
Although Sutter Health considered multiple locations for its center, the health care system cited the proximity to affordable housing for staff, the Sacramento region’s top colleges and universities and the skilled talent pools they provide as key factors that influenced the selection of Roseville.
Sutter-affiliated hospitals and facilities are regional leaders in cardiac and cancer care, women’s and children’s services, orthopedics and advanced patient safety technology. This expansion is in addition to other major ventures Sutter is undergoing and brings the current capital investment in the Sacramento region to nearly $1.7 billion. This will bring the company’s overall presence to more than 100 facilities — including Sutter Davis Hospital — and 48,000 employees statewide.
“Sutter Health is one of Northern California’s largest employers, and we’ve been a key part of the region’s economy and health care delivery system for nearly a century,” said Pat Fry, Sutter Health’s president and CEO, and a Davis resident. “The selection of Roseville for our service center represents another significant long-term commitment to support and grow with Northern California.”
Scheduled to open in early 2013, the center will occupy a 300,000-square-foot office building at 9100 Foothills Blvd., near Highway 65 and Blue Oaks Boulevard in west Roseville. Tenant improvements will begin immediately, and the first group of 200 to 300 employees will move into the facility in the first quarter of 2013. Additional employees will move to the center in phases.
Sutter Health doctors and hospitals serve more than 100 Northern California cities and towns with ambulatory, acute care, home health and other services. Sutter Health’s system offices will remain in Sacramento.
