SANTA ROSA – Sutter Health will break ground on its new $284 million hospital next to the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts a week from today. The project will replace the seismically unfit Chanate facility.
The new hospital and medical campus, totaling more than 316,000 square feet and 25 acres, was recently approved by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors after it was determined that Sutter met specific county health agreements. The environmental impact review and land use permits were approved in a prior meeting.
The first phase of construction is scheduled for Oct. 1 and will initially include 80,000 square feet of medical office buildings, Sutter officials said after the project met final, unanimous approval.
Unger Construction and HGA Architecture, both of Sacramento, will carry out the major elements of building and design.
