Peer reviewed study

A five-year study of Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, published in the Journal of the American College  of Surgeons, shows across-the-board improvements with the help of Surgical Affiliates. Results include:

Overall complications down by 43%

Length of stay dropped from 6.5 to 5.7 days

Nearly $2 million per year savings


We would not have been able to maintain quality without Surgical Affiliates' partnership. We have led the Sutter System in quality 5 out of the past 6 years. Readmissions are below 4% and surgical site infections are well below the industry average.

The Surgical Affiliates program is unprecedented. They provide a higher level of quality care and they are good at what they do, providing expertise and insight to the medical physician’s care.

- Michael Abate, M.D., Chief Medical Executive and CMO of Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento

The overarching intent of the surgical hospitalist movement is the creation of a new model of emergency surgical care that is patient-centered, responsive and readily accessible to all. The innovative efforts of Dr. Owens and his colleagues in this new direction are admirable.
