UC davis is really excellent for catostrophic care - brain injury/burns/cancer; UC davis usually gets paid for each day you are there and fight to provide the best care without hospital administration considerations. kaiser is good for wellness maintenance and basic acute care predictable situations. Sutter and mercy are private facilities that are operating for a profit (although they may be nonprofit) and their doctors are not, except for hospitalists, much aligned with their goals; they are good for basic acute care and they will tend to fight for best outcomes of the patient as they are not concerned with hospital administration goals and get paid for each day you are there. Kaiser has already received money for your care and lose money each day you are there.

Mercy, now called Dignity Health, is nonprofit.

Did you know Sutter is the most expensive hospital system in the Sacramento/No cal region? Many health insurance companies refuse to contract with them for this reason. Or they are not included in their HMO network. My plan just changed coverage & Sutter is only an option with the high deductible HSA plan. I'm staying with Sutter.

UC Davis Medical Center has the only Level 1 Trauma Center in the Sacramento area. It was recently designated as a Top 10 Hospital in America for Service Excellence by the American Alliance of Healthcare Providers (AAHCP), signifying it as one of America's most customer-friendly hospitals.

For the second consecutive year, UC Davis Health System has been designated as one of the nation's information technology leaders, according to the 2012 "Most Wired Survey and Benchmarking Study" that appears in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.
