Three Years in a Row!
In 2010, 2011 and 2012 Sutter Delta Medical Center received the HealthGrades® Emergency Medicine Excellence Award™, ranking the medical center in the top 5 percent of hospitals nationwide to deliver emergency medicine.
For residents of East Contra Costa County, the ranking means they have access to top-notch health care close to home.
Award Winning Care During Hospital Stay
"The HealthGrades study wasn't limited to our Emergency Department," explains Sutter Delta’s Vice President of Medical Affairs Brion Pearson M.D. "The study followed patients from our emergency department that were admitted to the hospital, so the ranking speaks to the care our patients received throughout the entire hospital."
