FAIRFIELD — Sutter Health offers an array of services in Solano County – at its Vallejo hospital and its Fairfield, Vacaville and Rio Vista medical centers.

The Sutter Fairfield Medical Campus on Low Court employs 257 people. Services range from gastroenterology to optometry to orthopedic surgery to podiatry to diagnostic imaging and more.

Urgent care is open from 1 to 8:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday and from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekends and holidays. Sutter is looking at expanding the days open.

“You do not need an appointment,” Sutter Health spokeswoman Tiffany Debol said. “It’s walk-in.”

The Sutter Solano Medical Center in Vallejo has 650 employees. It recently received an “A” grade for patient safety from the nonprofit The Leapfrog Group.

It has a cancer center accredited by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. The 60,000-square-foot center opened in December 2005, complete with waterways and gardens to offer a healing environment. Patients can get services from radiation therapy to pain management to support groups.

Sutter Solano Medical Center’s stroke center is certified by the nonprofit The Joint Commission. Criteria for certification include using a standard method for delivering care and tailoring treatment and intervention to individual needs.

“Anything to do with stroke services, we’re at the forefront of helping to treat these patients,” Debol said.

Sutter Medical Plaza/Vacaville at 770 Mason St. offers primary and specialty care. Among the services are allergy and immunology, family medicine and diagnostic imaging.

The Rio Vista Care Center at 690 Main St. offers family medicine, internal medicine and diagnostic imaging.

Sutter Health is active in the local community, Debol said. For example, it helps sponsor the Green Valley farmers market and the Tomato Festival in Fairfield. It recently donated school supplies for students from needy families.

“We are definitely a partner in this community,” Debol said. “It’s all about partnering together for better health.”

Sutter Health’s roots go deep into Solano County’s history, back to the Vallejo General Hospital founded in 1921. The hospital moved to its present location in 1969 and became affiliated with Sutter Health in 1984.

In Fairfield, local doctors in the 1940s founded Fairfield Medical Group, back in an era when the town had only a few thousand residents. The group became the Solano Regional Medical Group and in 2003 became the Sutter Medical Group.

The Fairfield Medical Group for years was located on Empire Street near downtown Fairfield. In 2005, the Sutter Regional Medical Foundation bought 11 acres on Low Court. Over the next couple of years, the Sutter Fairfield Medical Campus on Low Court in the Busch Corporate Center was built and opened.

Sutter Health-affiliated doctors and hospitals serve more than 100 communities in Northern California.
