Sutter Health investing $158 million for expansion of Santa Rosa hospital
Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital provides state-of-the-art care in its 84-bed acute care facility. Opening in 1867 as a small community hospital, it affiliated with Sutter Health in 1996 and eventually opened a modern replacement hospital to meet the needs of the community.
The current 84-bed acute care hospital features all private patient rooms, a modern design and green building construction–generating nearly 85% of its electricity on-site. Once opened, the hospital quickly found itself at capacity. In order to meet the needs of a growing community, Sutter Health is investing $158 million to expand the facility by adding a 3-story wing and covering 67,171 additional square feet.
The first phase is for a three-story tower to be completed in April 2022, followed by a renovation to expand the emergency department and support services in Fall 2022.
By the Numbers
The expansion will include the addition of:
- 40 all private room
- 2 operating rooms
- 1 endoscopy room
- 13 outpatient care unit beds
- 11 post-acute care unit bays
Renovation of 10,713 square feet within the existing hospital, includes an additional:
- 9 emergency department bays
- Expanded dietary services, lab/blood bank, and a central sterile processing unit to support additional services
World Class Care
SSRRH provides a full range of care for the community including intensive care; emergency services; obstetrics, nursery care and level III neonatal intensive care; medical and surgical services; comprehensive cardiac services; and a full range of women’s reproductive health services.
Caring for the Environment
Energy independence and caring for our environment is also important at SSRRH. In 2019, newly-installed solar panels on the facility’s parking structures and facility rooftops began supplying 1.6 megawatts of solar power to the facility.
The new solar installation, combined with the hospital’s hydrogen fuel cell generators, help the hospital generate 90 percent of its annual energy needs.
Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital proudly provides world-class health care to patients while also caring for the environment.
