Some of the great advancements that will define the future happen first in Northern California, and that’s where the roots of what is now Sutter Health began more than a century ago. Today over 53,000 employees, 12,000 physicians and 5,000 volunteers remain pioneers, always thinking ahead, learning and innovating.

Sutter Scholars Program Recognizes Employees’ Children, Grandchildren
Sutter Health awarded 235 students college scholarships for the 2016-2017 school year through our Van R. Johnson Sutter Scholars program. For more than a decade, Sutter Health has proudly supported the continuing education of tomorrow’s leaders by offering these scholarships—named in honor of former longtime Sutter Health CEO Van Johnson— exclusively to college-age children and grandchildren of employees within the Sutter Health network. Sutter has awarded more than 4,600 scholarships, totaling $7.6 million, since 2002.
Medical students Peter and Steven Lai, the sons of Houchin Tang, an audiologist at PAMF’s Mountain View Center, were among the children and grandchildren of employees within Sutter receiving a Van R. Johnson scholarship.
