Advanced Illness Management (AIM)® Reduces Hospitalizations, Health Care Costs
AUBURN, Calif. – Even with a history of cervical cancer and heart problems, 92-year-old Enes Cereni of South San Francisco says she enjoys time with her husband of 63 years and their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren thanks to Sutter Health’s Advanced Illness Management (AIM)® program, which launched in Solano, Sonoma and San Mateo counties recently, as well as in the East Bay Region and in San Francisco.

AUBURN, Calif. — The Auburn Sierra Medical Office Building will house many new outpatient services this summer for Sutter Medical Foundation, including lab and urgent care. But upon a closer look, you will see a certain artistic flair on the building’s walls – photography of those who work for Sutter Medical Foundation offices/departments in Auburn or those who live within the city.
Sutter Medical Foundation Regional Administrative Director Joyce Swan said the inspiration for the project took hold a couple of years ago when she and others saw the work photographer Amy Schuff had done for the Sutter Medical Foundation OB-GYN office in Auburn. Knowing that they wanted to do something different, Joyce and other SMF team members, along with Schuff and Sutter’s art consultant, Kira Stewart, brainstormed options. They decided not go with the standard prints and instead celebrate the community of Auburn through custom photography. Read More about Sutter Medical Office Building’s Photography Links to Locals

Amanda Jolley, a speech-language pathologist, who has been treating adults for speech therapy for seven years, began working at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital two years ago. Her work at the hospital includes patients suffering from neurological disorder. She sees these individuals on an outpatient basis and treats those who have suffered strokes or traumatic brain injury, or have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease or Multiple Sclerosis.
Last year Jolley completed training in the LOUD program which is a speech treatment primarily for individuals with Parkinson disease. This therapy works on improving enunciation, facial expressions and impaired swallowing. Treatment consists of four individual one-hour sessions, four times a week. Jolley has been using LOUD therapy for over a year.
“I love the LOUD therapy,” said Jolley. “I’ve seen all of my LOUD patients improve.” Read More about Sutter Auburn Implements LOUD Therapy for Parkinson Patients
