The market will be anchored by Sansum Clinic, a 103-year-old nonprofit outpatient healthcare organization based in Santa Barbara, which officially became part of Sutter Health in October.

“Our community-based markets allow us to laser-focus on delivering comprehensive, equitable care within each region, in order to make the greatest impact for the patients and communities we serve,” Warner Thomas, Sutter Health president and CEO, said in a press release.

“Expanding Sutter’s footprint, anchored by the Sansum Clinic in Santa Barbara, furthers our commitment to increasing access to our high-quality healthcare and services for the Central Coast community where they live and work,” Thomas said.

Sutter’s five other markets are Greater Sacramento, Greater Central Valley, Greater East Bay, Greater San Francisco and Greater Silicon Valley.
