    Our Expansion Plans

    South Placer County is one of the fastest growing areas of the country. As the area grows, Sutter Roseville Medical Center is meeting the challenge to sufficiently serve the growing number of Placer County residents and the increasing health care needs of the community.

    "Sutter Roseville Medical Center is fortunate to be part of a vibrant and growing community that holds a bright future," says Pat Brady, CEO of Sutter Roseville Medical Center. "As the community continues to expand, the hospital also must expand to sufficiently serve the growing number of Placer County residents."

    Sutter Roseville Medical Center’s Master Plan provides a phased strategic road map that incorporates analysis of current capabilities and the future needs of the Sutter Roseville campus and the rapidly growing community.

    "Sutter Roseville is dedicated to improving the overall health of the community," adds Brady. "We are excited to expand our physician base and programs and services to keep up with the growing demand from the community."

    Sutter Roseville Medical Center has completed the following expansion projects:

    Sutter Rehabilitation Institute

    As a Level II Trauma Center, Sutter Roseville often treats patients with the most serious injuries and illnesses.

    The Sutter Rehabilitation Institute opened with 40 beds and has recently expanded to 55 beds to provide expert care. In addition to the best in medical care, patients and their families are involved in a range of rehabilitation specialties to include physicians, nursing, neuropsychological, and multiple therapies (speech, physical, occupational and recreational), along with case management and social services.

    A new department, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) opened in September 2008 with 16 licensed beds serving residents in Placer County and beyond. The program will include physicians who are board certified in neonatal perinatal medicine and registered nurses with specialty training in the care of the critically ill neonate.

    The unit opened with 12 bassinets and provides immediate and advanced life-saving care to the most critically ill newborns. By offering the latest medical treatment for these fragile newborns, Sutter Roseville’s new NICU will keep parents and families closer to home, work and their other children, while allowing them more time with their newborn.
