Sutter Health, Sacramento, Calif., is planning a $385 million construction project that could transform part of the state's capital city into a medical complex that includes a new hospital, housing and retail space. The company's Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, has filed an application with the city for renovations and new construction in a seven-block area near the two-hospital campus. The complex, scheduled for completion in 2008 or 2009, will include a new eight-story, 200-bed Women's and Children's Hospital, renovations to Sutter General Hospital and a medical office building, as well as a $30 million to $35 million theater complex, 32 housing units and a shopping area. In April 2002, Sutter Health announced it would spend $3.5 billion over the next 15 years to renovate and expand its 25 northern California hospitals. -- by Laura B. Benko
