SEBMF Antioch Care Center Expanding Thanks to Philanthropic Support

Posted on Jun 7, 2017

Patients will soon have more medical staff close to home.

In 2015 Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation (SEBMF) served 33,000 patients who call east Contra Costa County home. In 2016 that number grew by 10 percent and this year it is on track to grow by another 10 percent. Accommodating such growth is at the heart of a $6.5 million dollar gift awarded to SEBMF by the generous donors to Better Health East Bay – a Sutter Health philanthropic foundation supporting Sutter’s East Bay network of doctors and hospitals.

“As the communities of Antioch, Brentwood, Byron, Discovery Bay, Knightsen, Oakley, and Pittsburg grow so too does their need for outpatient physician services” said Jim Hickman, CEO of Better Health East Bay. “Patients here have struggled to get access to timely and appropriate primary and specialty care – and they shouldn’t have to.”
