Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system in Northern California, headquartered in Sacramento. It includes doctors, hospitals and other health care services in more than 100 Northern California cities and towns. Major service lines of Sutter Health-affiliated hospitals include cardiac care, women's and children's services, cancer care, orthopedics and advanced patient safety technology. The new Santa Rosa Regional hospital will open in the fall of 2014 and has applied for LEED Gold certification.

Why Bloom?

Sutter Health is designing and building a state of the art medical center incorporating advanced technology and green building practices. The Bloom Energy fuel cell generates electricity through an electro-chemical process, using oxygen and natural gas to generate clean electricity on-site.

Implementation

The fuel cell will provide a substantial amount of power for the hospital while reducing CO2 emissions by more than 600,000 lbs each year, reducing their carbon footprint by 19 percent.
