The medical foundation calls the center Sutter Medical Plaza, It's a new pediatrics outpatient center that pulls together in one place the various offices and clinics where parents have previously had to take their children. Sutter opened the center in April, said Eric Rassmusen, director of growth and development for the foundation. The Sacramento development firm Separovich/Domich owns the building, which housed BloodSource before Sutter moved in.
Sutter took a lot of care to make it inviting to kids. Check out the warm colors, the wood, the art and butterflies and the light fixtures.
The outside of the building has tile murals in keeping with the Moorish theme the city is trying to encourage along neighboring Alhambra Boulevard.
Life, yes, is a long haul. Generations come and go and buildings get new lives and new acts. This is one old Sacramento warehouse that's come a long way.
Pictures are worth a thousands words in this case. Here's a look at the hallway art just inside the entrance: Rasmussen said the mural is named "Window Into Nature," painted by Nikki Solone of Sacramento.
