Sutter General Hospital

Provided a comprehensive suite of electrical solutions, without interrupting life-saving services.

Value Delivered

Contra Costa Electric provided a comprehensive suite of commercial electrical solutions during the renovation and expansion of Sutter General Hospital’s campus in Sacramento, CA.

The project consisted of two phases, the renovation of electrical systems within the existing 419,094-square-foot hospital and the construction of a new 398,400-square-foot women and children’s center. We were able to successfully complete both phases while the campus remained fully operational, without interrupting service to Sutter General’s patients.

Client Objectives

In an effort to better serve their patients, Sutter Health decided it would renovate their 270-bed hospital in Sacramento—featuring the addition of multiple beds and the expansion of their emergency department—while simultaneously constructing a new 9-story building on the campus, dedicated to maternal/children’s services.


During the renovation, we updated a variety of low-voltage systems for the existing facility and also filled-in existing structural bays to accommodate expansions.

For the new construction phase, we provided electrical distribution and all essential power systems, including:

  • Lighting and lighting control
  • Receptacles
  • HVAC loads
  • Electrical infrastructure for all low-voltage systems:
    • Tele/data
    • Security
    • Nurse call
    • CATV
    • Intercom
