Bryan Loofbourrow, Sutter Health Government Relations Manager, and Robert O’Hare, Senior Project Planner, gave an introductory presentation on the Sutter Health facility that will be moving into the old Longs/CVS building (2050 Blue Oaks Blvd.).
Sutter Health has taken a 10-year lease on the facility, the owners still wish to retain ownership of the facility. However, it will undergo a $6,400,000 renovation, including modifications both inside and outside: exterior signage, relocation of handicapped parking, added general parking, interior and exterior painting schemes to match the surrounding beautiful trees and creek area. Some clean-up has been done around the exterior of the building which has sat vacant since it was built 10 years ago, but more landscape will be addressed once occupied.
When opening in the first quarter of 2019, the facility will provide primary care services: family, pediatrics, and internal medicine. Also included will be a lab to perform blood-draws, urine testing, etc. (samples sent to Roseville Med Center for analysis). No X-RAY or pharmacy facilities will be on site. Their hours of operation are expected to be 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM Monday through Friday (similar to their Rocklin facility). They also referred to their “walk-in” facility located at Baseline and Foothill Blvd for urgent care needs.
Current plans for the facility were shown and discussed with the audience, showing the general layout for entry areas, lobby waiting areas (equipped with plug-ins for technology devices), exam rooms (usually two (2) per physician), staff stations, and lab areas. The plans provided will be posted with this review on the Neighborhood Association websites.
FFNA President, Loren Cook, thanked the Sutter Health representatives for being the first to provide long-awaited medical facilities out in the west Roseville area.
