Sutter Davis Hospital’s contribution marks the eighth year of donations by the not-for-profit network to local food banks and comprise a portion of Sutter Health’s $255,000 total donation benefiting 30 food banks throughout Northern California, Oregon and Hawaii.

Food banks say that monetary donations help maximize the amount of food available for the hungry – in many instances, a $1 donation can translate to approximately $5 worth of distributed food.

“Our community’s food banks are a vital source of nutritious food for families who, at times, may have to choose between food, rent or heat for their home,” said Sarah Krevans, President and CEO, Sutter Health. Read More

FAIRFIELD, Calif. – In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sutter Imaging in Fairfield is offering free mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women on Saturday, Oct. 8.

It is one of eight Sutter Imaging sites in the greater Sacramento/Solano region that have set aside one Saturday this month to perform the free digital screening mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women who otherwise may not have access to these potentially life-saving screenings.

“Early detection can lead to a longer, healthier life,” said David Totah, Outpatient Diagnostic Imaging Services manager for Sutter Medical Foundation in Solano County. “Unfortunately, some women view mammograms as ‘optional,’ especially those without insurance or who have high copayments. We want to help create better access for them and put them on a path toward wellness.”
