October 31, 2012–Sutter Health today announced a half million dollar donation to the American Red Cross, Capital Region Chapter, following the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast this week.
“The damage caused by superstorm Sandy is indescribable,” said Pat Fry, president and CEO of Sutter Health. “Our thoughts go out to everyone affected. We hope our donation brings comfort to our fellow Americans in their time of great need.”
In recent years, Sutter Health has supported the American Red Cross’ humanitarian efforts close to home and across the globe, with donations for disaster relief work following the earthquake in Haiti; the earthquake and tsunami in Japan; Hurricane Katrina; and fires in California.
Sutter Health physicians and hospitals share a common commitment to creating healthier communities through programs and services that respond to community needs. In 2011, our network invested $756 million in care and services for the poor and underserved.
