Sutter Maternity & Surgery Center (SMSC) is unlike any other hospital you may know. It offers state-of-the-art maternity and medical/surgical services, combining patient-center care and family convenience with the safety and security of a licensed and accredited acute-care hospital.
The hospital was designed and built to help you feel as comfortable as possible. With 30 licensed beds, SMSC is small enough to provide the utmost personal attention to every patient. At SMSC, you will find amenities you may not expect to find in most hospitals.
Studies show that the quickest way to heal after surgery is by being active. That is why we want you to be involved in your care. Our hospital was designed to promote wellness and healing. The wide hallways, soft hues, balconies and expansive windows are there to help you feel better, sooner. Everyone on our staff, from nurses to guest services, really understands what patients need.
For our maternity services, we have both doctors and midwives on staff, which means you have a choice in your obstetrical care. We have six operating rooms, 12 birthing suites and 18 medical/surgical patient suites. As a smaller facility we are able to provide you with personal attention when you want it and quiet time when you need it.
A joint project of Sutter Health and the Santa Cruz Medical Clinic, SMSC was completed and opened to patients in March of 1996. The hospital is fully accredited by The Joint Commission.
