Sutter Davis Hospital Partners with Milk Bank for First Breast Milk Drive

Posted by on Dec 12, 2017 | 0 comments

DAVIS — Breastfeeding mothers walked into Sutter Davis Hospital carrying coolers full of breastmilk. It was their way of giving back, they said, during the holidays.

Pauline Sakamoto, executive director, San Jose Mothers’ Milk Bank, collects breast milk donations from a mother during Thursday’s breast milk drive at Sutter Davis Hospital.

Sutter Davis Hospital and the non-profit San Jose Mothers’ Milk Bank (MMB SJ) hosted a successful first mothers’ milk drive for the community to save infants who need human milk. Mothers and families brought their frozen human milk to the milk drive last Thursday.

Four donors donated more than 400 ounces of breast milk at the drive.

Donating Mothers’ Milk is as important as donating blood for fragile infants, and both Sutter Davis Hospital and MMB SJ believe this milk drive is an opportunity for the community to understand more deeply how their donated milk is a moment for civic pride.

“We are thrilled to partner with San Jose Mothers’ Milk Bank on this breast milk drive and hope that we can make this a regular event for our community,” said Carolyn Campos, manager, Family Birth Center, Sutter Davis Hospital. “We want every baby to have access to mothers’ milk. We believe it is a human right for infants and children to have the best care possible, and we know that human milk, when collected and pasteurized by non-profit milk banks to hospital grade levels, is the future of neonatal and post-partum care.” Read More

Sutter Davis Hospital Welcomes New 3D Mammography Machine

Posted by on Oct 3, 2017 | 0 comments

Beth Ward, mammography/radiation technologist, Sutter Davis Hospital, stands next to the hospital’s new 3D mammography machine.

DAVIS —Sutter Davis Hospital welcomed a new 3D mammography machine on Monday.

The new technology helps provide earlier breast cancer detection with low radiation, the first of its kind in Davis.

Also known as tomosynthesis, 3D mammography improves clinician’s ability to detect the size, shape and location of cancerous tumors within the breast by up to 40 percent.

3D technology creates hundreds of imagines rather than the traditional four images provided by a digital mammogram. Radiologists view breast tissue layer by layer, one millimeter at a time, similar to a CT scan reducing follow-up tests by up to 80 percent.

“The addition of a 3D mammography machine at Sutter Davis Hospital means early breast cancer detection and a decreased need for additional images and biopsies allowing for a quicker diagnosis, less false positives and more peace of mind,” said Jennifer Maher, CEO, Sutter Davis Hospital. “We are thrilled to provide this service to our community.”

Sutter Davis Hospital has made significant enhancements in its diagnostic imaging services this year. In May, the hospital installed a new 128-slice CT scanner.

Posted by on Aug 11, 2017 | 0 comments

SACRAMENTO – Thanks to the generous donations of Sutter Health employees, Operation Backpack had a successful year bringing in thousands of backpacks, filled with schools supplies for local students before the start of a new school year.

  Operation Backpack is a yearly campaign organized by the Volunteers of America that delivers backpacks, collected for students from pre-kindergarten through 12 graders, to homeless and at-risk children in our communities. The Sutter Health Valley Area, together, generously donated more than 2,000 backpacks to the campaign to provide students with the supplies they need to help them be successful in school.

“Supporting Operation Backpack was a new opportunity for affiliates in the South Valley Area this year and I was overwhelmed by the display of generosity from our team,” said Debbie Rinaldo, community benefit coordinator at Sutter Tracy Community Hospital. “For us, it’s a simple donation of school supplies, but for underserved youth and their families, it means that Sutter Health cares.”
