During a foggy morning, a construction worker walks along a steel beam two stories above ground level. Work is in progress on The Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center. This expansion of Sutter General Hospital will be a 242-bed, nine story building that will provide innovative technology in a patient-focused environment. It also will feature a life-saving helistop near Capitol Freeway, which will allow helicopters to transport severely injured and sick patients for treatment, mostly newborn and pediatric patients.
- Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center will provide the highest level of neonatal and pediatric intensive care services, pediatric cardiac care, pediatric neurosurgery services, pediatric cancer services, and high-risk and conventional maternity services to families in 27 counties.
- A freestanding, three-story skywalk will connect the Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center with the Ose Adams Medical Pavilion.
- The Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children’s Center is named in honor of the generous donation from the Anderson Lucchetti family. At $18 million, the Anderson Lucchetti contribution ranks as the single largest gift from an individual family to a capital campaign in the greater Sacramento area.
Construction crews have begun installing case arms for the new spanning structure that will eventually connect Sutter General Hospital to the Women’s and Children’s Center.
The expansion project is right next to Biba’s Restaurant at Capitol and 29th St.
