Community Health Centers Get Sutter Grant

The nonprofit Santa Cruz Community Health Centers announces a $35,000 grant from Sutter Maternity & Surgery Center to support capital improvements.

The Women’s Health Center will install new security features in its front lobby and interior flood lighting. At East Cliff Family Health Center, privacy partitions and three power-lift exam tables will be added, as well as soundproofing for the Behavioral Health Department. Both clinics will get new iPad tablets, cordless illuminators, an automated vitals station and pediatric pulse oximeters.

This grant is in addition to Sutter’s investment of $1.5 million over five years to help expand Santa Cruz Community Health Centers, which serves 12,000 patients a year.

“It is especially important — and appreciated — now as the future of healthcare funding continues to take the national spotlight,” said Leslie Conner, executive director of Santa Cruz Community Health Centers.
