TRACY — The Sutter Gould Medical Foundation unveiled a new 47,000-square-foot office building on Oct. 11 at 445 W. Eaton Ave., across from Sutter Tracy Community Hospital.
The new building enables Sutter to expand its offerings — including an urgent care clinic — to Tracy area residents.
“We are very excited to have our building open,” said Gary Zufelt, CEO for Sutter Gould Medical Foundation, in a statement. “Our wonderful staff, volunteers and physicians are ready to care for their patients.” He went on to say that the new building was designed to aid the medical group in offering patients the highest levels of quality, access and affordability.
“It gives us the ability to continue to grow and provide expanded services well into the future,” Zufelt said.
Along with existing services such as family, internal and pediatric medicine, dermatology, orthopedics and others, Sutter is introducing an injection and shot clinic, lab and blood-draw stations and imaging services. Most of these services were previously only available through the network at other locations such as Stockton, Modesto and Turlock.
“Having a full range of outpatient care right next to Sutter Tracy Community Hospital helps us provide a complete continuum of care to the community,” Director of Foundation Growth and Strategy Richard Leal said.
Dave Thompson, CEO of Sutter Tracy Community Hospital, has been a proponent of the new building, saying it will allow for more physicians in the area.
“We welcome the expansion of Sutter Gould Medical Foundation in Tracy,” Thompson said. “As our city grows, our mission is to have more physicians in Tracy, which also means additional services our hospital can support in the future.”
