April 3, 2015 - SMCS Move Day and Sutter EHR Go-Live Set for Saturday, August 8, 2015
Last summer we conceived of the plan to give birth on the same day to our twin major projects: the opening of our new campus and Sutter EHR go-live. Since then, we fondly referred to this as our MOMs (Mothers of Multiples) strategy, after our groundbreaking program for mothers who are giving birth to twins, triplets and other multiples. The MOMs Program helps expectant mothers to have the safest, most successful deliveries possible and to be prepared for the day when they bring their babies home.
With our twin projects of the patient move day and EHR go-live, safety and preparation are our highest priorities. The due date for our twins is set for August 8, 2015.
With just four more months to prepare, we cannot sit back and relax. There is a lot of work to be done for both the completion of our midtown expansion and the EHR. Staffs are touring, training and preparing their departments inside the new Anderson Lucchetti Women’s and Children's Center. Our construction crews are working diligently inside Sutter General Hospital to complete the Emergency Department, new operating rooms and cardiac cath labs in order to give the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), the California Department of Public Health and the State Fire Marshal enough time to approve the new spaces and allow our staffs time to get everything ready for our move-in date.
We look forward to partnering with our physicians to train and prepare so that our multiples birth will be entirely safe and successful. Thank you for all you are doing.
