    For Surgery Patients and Their Families
    Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento

    Your family and friends are an important part of your health care team. During your surgery, they may wait for you in the surgical waiting room where they will find magazines, television and the daily paper.

    Our surgery waiting areas are equipped with a monitor showing a patient’s progress through the procedure from pre-operative to recovery room. Families can always know where their family member is as the surgery progresses from pre-op to recovery.

    There is a cafeteria available for families to use. At Sutter General Hospital, the cafeteria is located on the 2nd floor, while at Sutter Memorial Hospital it is located on the first floor.

    Cards, flowers, magazines, snacks and gifts can be found in the gift shop at each hospital.

    Your comfort and well being are very important to us. Please let us know if there is any other information we can provide you with in our endeavor to provide you with very good care.
