Sutter Regional Medical Foundation Opens New Fairfield Care Center
FAIRFIELD, Calif., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- With Sutter Regional Medical Foundation's newly completed third building on Sutter Fairfield Medical Campus, community residents now have access to a full-range of state-of-the-art health care services in one convenient location.
The three-story, 69,000-square-foot care center, located at 2720 Low Court, replaces the 1234 Empire Street location, providing an enhanced environment and room for growth. Designed with comfort and healing in mind, the new care center houses:
-- Family practice offices and an expanded laboratory on the first floor -- Pediatrics, internal medicine, oncology, rheumatology and cardiology on the second floor -- Administrative offices and additional space for clinical growth on the third floor Services Are Steps AwaySutter Fairfield Medical Campus allows patients to care for all their health care needs in one place. One existing building houses the advanced Diagnostic Imaging Center and Ambulatory Surgery Center, and the other houses the After-Hours Care Clinic; surgical specialty offices; and newly constructed offices for obstetrics/gynecology, ophthalmology/optometry and urology. A covered walkway connects the new building to the existing imaging center, surgery center and surgical specialty offices.
"We designed this building with the needs of our patients, clinicians and staff in mind," says Carolyn Appenzeller, R.N., chief operating officer at Sutter Regional Medical Foundation. "Patients will enjoy the upscale feel and spaciousness, as well as the natural light in the waiting area. They'll also benefit from the enhanced flow, which will facilitate a higher level of communication among our personnel."
Meeting Patient Demand
The new building will also give Sutter team members more room to care for patients. For example, cardiology will now have an additional treadmill room and more equipment to better meet the high patient demand for these services.
"Solano Regional Medical Group clinicians and their staff are excited about being able to enhance the services they provide to patients in beautiful, new surroundings," says Appenzeller. "Based on the response we've had to the public display of the design boards, we know patients are excited about the new facility as well."
