Sutter Health Sponsors Celebrity Golf Fundraiser to Research Youth Brain Injuries

Posted by on Jun 7, 2017 | 0 comments

SACRAMENTO – Northern California’s Sutter Health signed on to be the title sponsor of a celebrity golf tournament raising funds for research on traumatic brain injuries in high school football and other sports.

Toran Maronic at age 5, left, and age 15, the season before suffering a traumatic brain injury during a football scrimmage. Toran was a Division 1 receiver prospect for Bear River High School.

The Game-Changer Celebrity Golf Classic, headlined by many former Oakland Raiders and other NFL and sports greats, will be held June 16 and 17 at Whitney Oaks Golf Club in Rocklin, Calif. The event is presented by three nonprofit organizations focused on high school football brain injuries.

“The cooperation between the three nonprofits – T3 Charities, 21 Strong and Practice Like Pros – has been amazing, and the fantastic response from members of the NFL is heart-warming knowing they are supportive of our cause,” said Jeffrey R. Jenkins, M.D., chief medical executive of Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital. “I am also grateful to all of our sponsors for helping bring this issue to the greater public. Because of this spirit of cooperation, we will be able to make a huge difference in the knowledge about detection, prevention and treatment of traumatic brain injuries among high school athletes.”

The tournament is hosted by the family of 17-year-old Toran Maronic of Bear River High School in Grass Valley, who was a college prospect in football and lacrosse. In June 2016, the wide receiver was brain-injured during a 7-on-7 scrimmage. Specialists believed Toran would never come out of his coma or fully recover, but he did and is now awaiting clearance to pursue playing lacrosse again. He became the first patient enrolled in groundbreaking scientific research on “second-impact syndrome” among high school football players.

Proceeds of the tournament will go to the research project, which is being conducted by Robert C. Cantu, M.D., co-founder of the Concussion Legacy Foundation in Boston. The research is sponsored by Practice Like Pros, which encourages high school football programs to hold practices like the NFL does. According to the group, just 2½ percent of NFL injuries happen during practices, while 58 percent of high school injuries occur at practice.

Former Oakland Raiders Hall of Famer Willie Brown and greats Jim Plunkett, Ted Kwalick, Daryle Lamonica, Phil Villapiano, Rod Martin and Charles Woodson are among the three-dozen sports celebrities participating in the golf tournament. Every player who signs up will be in a five-some captained by one of the celebrities. Entry and sponsorship fees are tax-deductible. Read More

Formerly Conjoined Twins Wow Family’s Longtime Sutter Pediatrician

Posted by on Apr 10, 2017 | 0 comments

ROSEVILLE, Calif. – Roseville pediatrician Eswari Prakasam, M.D., was ready to check in the ears of 2-year-old Eva Sandoval, one of the formerly conjoined twins from Antelope.

Former conjoined twin Erika Sandoval, right, smiles while wearing bunny ears as her twin Eva’s real ears are checked by Sutter Medical Foundation pediatrician Eswari Prakasam, M.D.

“What’s in your ears?” she asked Eva. Her mother, Aida Sandoval, added, “Is it Goofy?”

“Nooooo,” Eva said with a huge smile.

It was Eva and twin Erika’s first visit to the Sandoval family’s longtime pediatrician since the two were surgically separated in December. And after the hour-long check-up, Dr. Prakasam gave the twins two big thumbs-up.

“They’re doing great,” Dr. Prakasam said. “They’re healing well and there’s absolutely no concerns of their mental capabilities. In fact, I’d say they’re a little advanced. They know and say stuff that’s more like a 3-year-old than a 2-year-old.” Read More

Posted by on Mar 24, 2017 | 0 comments

ROSEVILLE, Calif. — A peaceful retreat for cancer patients and their families, as well as physicians and Sutter staff, is now available at Sutter Cancer Center, Roseville, located at 8 Medical Plaza Drive.

Sutter Roseville Medical Center Foundation Donor Bob Lamora strolls through the peaceful Sutter Roseville Auxiliary Healing Garden that wraps around the new Sutter Cancer Center in Roseville.

The new Sutter Roseville Auxiliary Healing Garden was made possible by a generous gift from the Sutter Roseville Auxiliary to the Sutter Roseville Medical Center Foundation.

Sutter Urgent Care in Roseville Moving to Larger Location

Posted by on Feb 1, 2017 | 0 comments

ROSEVILLE, Calif. – Beginning Feb. 10, patients seeking care from Sutter Medical Foundation’s Urgent Care Center in Roseville will see some major improvements.

The Urgent Care Center will make a short move across Medical Plaza Drive to a larger, more accommodating location on the Sutter Roseville Medical Center campus. The new location, at 3 Medical Plaza Drive, Suite 140, promises to bring shorter wait times, improved parking and more efficient processes to the very popular urgent care service.

Sutter Urgent Care is moving to larger offices in Building 3 on the Sutter Roseville Medical Center campus.

“We are excited to be moving to our new space,” said Robert Bixler, M.D., Urgent Care Department Chief and Sutter Medical Group (SMG) physician. “One of the most exciting features our new urgent care offers is that our physicians and staff will have 20 exam rooms in which to treat patients, as opposed to the seven rooms in our current location. This should definitely improve our ability to provide care in a smoother, faster manner. I think our patients will be pleased with the process.”

The relocation is part of a combination of changes aimed at increasing access to SMG physicians. Also this month, SMF’s Internal Medicine department makes the move to occupy the space formerly housing urgent care at 2 Medical Plaza Drive, Suite 130 and an additional office at Suite 200.

Urgent care centers offer a faster, convenient and economical alternative to going to the emergency room for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. The hours of operation will remain the same – open 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. seven days a week. Onsite laboratory and imaging services make the urgent care experience even more convenient.

“Most of our patients in need of urgent care services come to the center on a walk-in basis, and we want to make their visit as smooth as possible,” said Jennifer Kubasek, Manager of Urgent Care Services. “From ample parking to more space in the clinic, our new location will help us continue to provide quality health care when urgent services are needed.”

Patients can check approximate wait times at all of the SMF urgent care centers by visiting their web site at www.suttermedicalfoundation.org/urgentcare. Sutter Medical Foundation Urgent Care Centers are located in Sacramento, Auburn, Davis, Elk Grove, Fairfield, Folsom, Roseville and Yuba City.
