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.
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.
“The Sutter Roseville Auxiliary Healing Garden’s beautiful landscaping, private seating areas and fountain is a comforting, peaceful retreat,” said Becky Thompson, the Sutter Health’s Interim Director of Philanthropy in Placer County. “It is a beautiful space for quiet reflection for Sutter Roseville patients, families, physicians and employees. Cancer patients and families in particular will enjoy the close proximity to the Infusion Center, physician offices, and the future Institute for Health and Healing.”
Included in the design of the Sutter Roseville Auxiliary Healing Garden are commemorative bricks placed along the main pathway through the garden. Donors have honored loved ones and clinicians by purchasing bricks and benches inscribed with names. Bricks are still available by going to: www.sutterroseville.org/philanthropy/brickcampaign/.

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.
“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.

ROSEVILLE, Calif. — Sutter Roseville Medical Center this week unveiled its new Infusion Center, a centerpiece of a comprehensive cancer center on the Sutter Roseville campus that also includes offices for oncology specialists and surgeons.
The new 13,500-square-foot Infusion Center was designed after much feedback from cancer patients who will use the new facility. For many cancer patients, the new Infusion Center will become a second home, requiring them to stay up to 10 hours a day with several sessions a week, and their care can last for months and even years.
“It’s incredibly comfortable and more calming here,” said longtime multiple sclerosis patient Shawna Lopez of Lincoln, whose monthly visits last more than five hours. She said in the past she would be isolated in a room, where it was tough to while away the hours. The new infusion bays are large and open, with curtains that can be closed if patients want privacy. “Most of us like to talk to each other,” she said, “so this is perfect.”
Sutter Roseville Medical Center’s growing infusion program has been bursting at the seams, with an increase in patients making the move to a larger facility necessary. Previously, infusion services were split into two locations on the Sutter Roseville campus.
That all changed Monday. The new Sutter Cancer Center, Roseville opened a consolidated Infusion Center on the second floor with 42 infusion bays – up from 33 bays in the former locations – with plenty of space to grow. In addition, a dedicated pharmacy was constructed inside the Infusion Center and will allow for a more efficient process for preparing the medications and delivering them to the patient bays.

ROSEVILLE –Sutter Roseville Medical Center (SRMC) dedicated its new chapel today, highlighting the beautiful space available to patients, visitors and staff that offers a stained glass window created by Chico artist Mick Needham.
Hospital staff, volunteers, chaplains and the construction team were invited to celebrate the formal opening of the space. The SRMC chapel offers a quiet place for everyone at the hospital to go and gather their thoughts.
“We want our chapel to be a peaceful, quiet place for everyone, no matter their denomination or faith tradition, to come and pray, meditate or simply just sit and reflect,” said Gerald Jones, SRMC director of pastoral care. “We are very excited to have such a beautiful piece of art incorporated into our new space to welcome everyone.”
Needham, a Chico native, operates Needham Studios with his two sons and was selected to create the piece through a national search. Throughout his 45-year career, the studio has produced glass for numerous area churches and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company’s restaurant in Chico, to name a few.
“It’s rewarding to be able to create a dynamic piece that helps provide peace and calm for people who may be having a hard time,” said Needham. “I was simply inspired by the local landscape as I walked with Gerald and discussed the project.”
The new chapel was made possible through donations to the Sutter Roseville Medical Center Foundation (SRMCF).
“We are so excited to have this great space that highlights the beautiful area we live in, all while promoting a local artists and providing a quiet and serene place for our patients and family members,” said Patricia Marquez, SRMCF executive director.
SRMC developed a new chapel space to allow for the expansion of its pharmacy, which will enhance patient and physician pharmacy services.
