As part of the Sutter Medical Network, which was created in 2007 to bring physicians across the Northern California health care delivery system together to strive to advance the quality, consistency and affordability of care for Sutter Health patients. With nearly 5,000 primary care doctors and specialists in medical foundations and aligned Independent Practice Associations (IPAs), the Sutter Medical Network has a presence in dozens of cities and towns across Northern California–from Sonoma County to the Central Valley, and from Santa Cruz to the Mother Lode foothills.
Moving collectively, the Sutter Medical Network works to advance clinical quality, the patient experience, and the affordability of care.
