Sutter’s Board of Directors is okaying a new community hospital in Elk Grove … and an outpatient facility in Auburn. This means there won’t be a replacement for Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital for at least a decade, a spokesperson said. Plans for Sutter’s new hospital complex in midtown Sacramento are still moving ahead…and replacement hospitals will move forward at numerous Bay Area locations. 

Inflation and new standards for seismic safety are ramping up costs hundreds of millions of dollars beyond estimates that Sutter developed just a few years ago.
