Marin Healthcare District CEO Comments on Sutter donation to Marin Community Foundation

GREENBRAE, CA — Upon hearing news of Sutter Health's donation to Marin Community Foundation, Marin Healthcare District CEO released the following comment;

"We are pleased to see Sutter make a donation to Marin Community Foundation with a goal of increasing access to healthcare for the uninsured and underinsured. Every dollar that stays in Marin, for the community's benefit, and not sent to Sutter's Sacramento headquarters, is a positive development. We continue to hope Sutter will ultimately leave Marin General Hospital with the reserves it has built up for itself over the years, rather than continuing to transfer and hold them in Sacramento for other Sutter projects. That would go a long way toward helping our community with the costs of meeting new seismic standards for the hospital which has been so lucrative for Sutter over the past 10 years."
