Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento Donates New Wheelchairs to Sacramento River Cats

Posted by on Dec 22, 2017 | 0 comments

SACRAMENTO — The Sacramento River Cats (and their fans) received a wonderful Christmas gift just in time for the holiday.

Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento staff delivered new wheelchairs to Raley Field today for Sacramento River Cats fans.

One of Sutter Health’s largest affiliates, Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, donated five wheelchairs to the Sacramento River Cats to help fans with mobility challenges. Wheelchairs will be used to help a fan enter a game from the parking lot or transport a fan throughout the stadium during a game.

Sutter Health is a long-time sponsor of the baseball team and the two local organizations teamed up once again on Friday.

“We are very happy to donate these wheelchairs to the Sacramento River Cats to help fans with mobility challenges,” said Ariel Feigenbaum, strategic partnerships, Sutter Health. “We don’t want mobility challenges to be a reason that someone can’t attend their favorite sporting event. The River Cats are a great partner and we enjoy working with them.”

The wheelchairs were delivered to Raley Field in a Sutter-branded vehicle by members of the Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento staff and received with open arms by the Sacramento River Cats staff.

“We are so grateful to Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento today for making this donation,” said Greg Coletti, vice president, corporate partnerships. “Our fans will enjoy their experience so much more knowing that they have a way to get around the stadium safely.”

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

Saturday’s Live Auction of Quilted Artworks to Benefit Breast Cancer Services

Posted by on Nov 3, 2017 | 0 comments

SACRAMENTO — Fifty exquisite, handmade quilts will be up for the highest bid during the 2017 Breast Cancer Quilt Auction beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at the Buhler Specialty Pavilion on the Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento campus, 2800 L St. Meanwhile, silent bids for about 450 other fabric works of art hanging on the hospital campus will continue Saturday morning until bidding is closed at 1 p.m.

Each of the quilts is a work of art created specially for the auction, which supports breast cancer services at Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento. None of them is just tied; they are all quilted by artisans in the Sacramento region and across the nation.

The quilts, which make unique holiday gifts, range in size from little over a foot, such as “Spirit,” to giant size, such as the 8-foot tapestry, “Around Town.” Patterns range from traditional block designs to intricate art pieces depicting animals, flowers, landscapes and even city scenes. There are quilts for children with Disney and other kid-friendly themes, and some with a breast cancer theme, including one, “Eenie Meenie,” made from unused bikini tops from a bathing suit manufacturer. A number have Christmas or winter themes. All of them, however, were made with the breast cancer auction in mind, with most of them created in remembrance of a family member or friend who either survived or succumbed to the disease.

Amazon, ACCO Provide Memorable Experiences for Former Sutter Children’s Center Patients

Posted by on Nov 3, 2017 | 0 comments

SACRAMENTO — It’s not every day that a child gets to go behind the scenes to see how an Amazon warehouse operates.

Tommy, a former Sutter Children’s Center, Sacramento, patient checks out the Amazon fulfillment center during a recent tour.

Two former Sutter Children’s Center, Sacramento patients did just that when Amazon partnered with the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) to provide experiences for 30 pediatric oncology patients around the country.

Tommy, who wants to be an animator, and Leah, a budding chemist who has shown an interest in coding, visited the Amazon warehouse in Tracy where they got a first-hand look at the technology that helps the facility operate. Tommy, 10, met with designers and illustrators who create the company’s videos.

“It was a really neat experience,” said Tommy’s mom, Jennifer. “He had a great time. The designers said they were going to feature him in one of their upcoming videos.”

Through a new collaboration, ACCO and Amazon celebrated children diagnosed with cancer who demonstrate an interest in STEM. In September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, ACCO and Amazon delivered smiles to 30 children in 30 days, one for every day of the month, through exciting STEM-related immersion experiences across the country.

Leah’s experience included learning about coding and how the robots at Amazon fulfill orders. As an added bonus, Leah, 8, got to meet the San Francisco 49ers cheerleaders.

“She was excited to meet them,” said Leah’s mom, Yuri. “They taught her some new moves and Leah picked them up right away. It was a great day.” Read More
