SEBMF Pediatricians Participate in Program Intended to Develop Young Minds

Posted on Nov 9, 2017

Susan Adham, M.D.

When Dr. Susan Adham was a little girl growing up in Sunnyvale, she fondly remembered going to the library and reading book after book with her father. So when the Antioch and Brentwood pediatrician learned about a non-profit program called Reach Out and Read that incorporates books into pediatric care and encourages families to read to their children, she jumped at the chance to replicate the program here in the East Bay.

“Encouraging children to read at an early age promotes healthy brain development and provides a foundation for success,” says Adham. “Several studies have shown that exposing babies and young children to language and reading books in the first few years of their lives is vital in preparing them for kindergarten and beyond.”

Thanks to a $20,000 charitable gift from Better Health East Bay, Sutter Health’s East Bay philanthropic foundation, SEBMF pediatricians will provide books to children six months to five years of age at the end of each office visit.  All children will receive an age appropriate book that they can choose from with their parents.

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.”
