RE: Temporary Closure of Sutter Pioneer Health Center
Beginning April 29, 2013, the Sutter Pioneer Health Center will be temporarily closed while Sutter Medical Group continues to recruit a new physician for this location. Please know there will not be a reduction of staff with this change. We will utilize staff at other SMF care centers within the Amador region to support operations.
Sutter Medical Foundation is making every effort to make this change as easy as possible for patients. Beginning May 1, accommodations are in place for Patricia Sullivan, FNP, to see patients at the Sutter Plymouth Health Center. Patient letters were sent April 16, informing them of the temporary change.
We will work closely with the Care Center management to support the transition and to assist in the recruitment process.If you have any questions or concerns for me in the meantime, please let me know. Thank you.
