Sutter Davis Hospital - 100 Great Hospitals in America | 2014

Sutter Davis (Calif.) Hospital. In 2013, the 48-bed Sutter Davis Hospital put itself on the national map after it captured the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award — the highest award bestowed annually by the White House for innovation, leadership and quality. 

Sutter-Davis-Hospital-factsSutter Davis' history traces back to 1964, when two businessmen secured donated land to build a rural hospital. After several years of planning and construction, the hospital opened its doors in 1968. Years later, the hospital — part of Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health — was recognized for its high performance scores in quality outcomes, particularly for heart attack, congestive heart failure and pneumonia. Sutter Davis, supported by 387 employees and 394 medical staff members, also is among the best in the country for HCAHPS scores, low hospital-acquired conditions and low post-operative orthopedic surgical infection rates.

The hospital also had an overall profit margin of 25 percent in 2011, which Baldrige officials said helped enable quality health services. Sutter Davis CEO Janet Wagner said in November that the Baldrige award "may seem like the end to a long journey; however, it is just a springboard to executing the many innovative ideas and processes that this complex healthcare environment demands." Sutter Davis also made Truven Health Analytics' 100 Top Hospitals list for 2014.
