SACRAMENTO —Sutter Davis Hospital and Sutter Center for Psychiatry were named by Modern Healthcare as two of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2017. They are the only hospitals in Northern California to receive the award, which honors U.S. workplaces in health care that enable employees to perform at their optimum level to provide patients and customers with the best possible care, products and services.

Sutter Center for Psychiatry was named a 100 Best Place to Work in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare.

This is the ninth year in a row that Sutter Davis Hospital was honored in the Modern Healthcare Best Places to Work survey, and it is the sixth consecutive year for Sutter Center for Psychiatry, part of Sutter Health’s mental health division. It is one of two psychiatric facility recognized.

A total of 100 health-care workplaces around the country – representing providers (including hospitals), suppliers, payers and associations– were honored as Best Places to Work in Healthcare. The two Sutter Health affiliates are the only ones honored in the greater Sacramento region.

Based on submissions sent in from hundreds of health care organizations across the country, Modern Healthcare examined dozens of workplace issues, from leadership and planning to pay and benefits. A crucial element to the evaluation process was surveys that were sent out to randomly selected employees. These surveys helped Modern Healthcare hear directly from staff about how they feel engaged and empowered in their jobs.

Sutter Center for Psychiatry is the only not-for-profit psychiatric hospital in the greater Sacramento region that is part of Sutter Health’s innovative mental health division. It includes an inpatient, 73-bed psychiatric facility for children and adults and an outpatient center that offers partial hospitalization and other mental health programs.

Sutter Davis Hospital was named a Best Place to Work in Healthcare for the ninth straight year.

“We strive every day to make a difference in the lives of our patients and that sense of accomplishment in our staff helped greatly in receiving this honor,” said John Boyd, CEO, Mental Health Services for Sutter Health. “We are thrilled to be recognized by Modern Healthcare once again.”

Sutter Davis Hospital offers a technologically advanced acute-care hospital, a strong offering of outpatient services and community outreach programs. The 48-bed hospital and its programs provide care and support to the residents of Davis, Dixon, Winters, Woodland, West Sacramento, Vacaville and rural communities throughout Yolo and Eastern Solano counties.

“We are extremely honored by this recognition. We have a strong culture at Sutter Davis Hospital that includes providing outstanding care to our patients while also caring for another’s well-being,” said Sutter Davis Hospital CEO Jennifer Maher. “We take an immense amount of pride in modeling a collaborative work environment that keeps patients at the heart of everything we do.”

Sutter Center for Psychiatry and Sutter Davis Hospital are part of the Sutter Health network, a not-for-profit, community-based health system located throughout Northern California. For more information on Sutter Davis Hospital visit and for Sutter Center for Psychiatry visit
