Sutter Health bringing new jobs, facility to Roseville

-A +A

A major healthcare provider in the region is expanding its presence in Roseville in a big way — making the city its new headquarters for administrative services.

The announcement was greeted by city officials as a major victory over competing markets.

Sutter Health currently operates a large medical complex near Roseville Parkway that offers services, ranging from urgent care to specialty treatments and drug testing. Today, Roseville City Manager Ray Kerridge revealed the company will be filling a number of local office buildings with 200 to 300 employees working in its new administrative center.

“This brings new jobs, new revenues, and provides opportunities for other businesses and industry sectors, like retail and construction, to experience new growth as well,” Kerridge said in a statement. “This is the kind of result our city was seeking with the ‘Open for Business’ vision as we work with our community to grow our economy.”

Roseville Mayor Pauline Roccucci also commented on the development, saying, “Sutter’s investment means our community will be gaining many new residents, and we extend the warmest of welcomes to them and their families.”

City officials said the new operation is scheduled to open in early 2013 and will utilize a nearly 300,000-square-foot office building at 9100 Foothills Blvd. in west Roseville. The site was originally built by Hewlett-Packard as part of its Roseville campus before being vacated.

Roseville officials claim Sutter Health’s new move “singlehandedly reduces Roseville’s office vacancy rate by 20 percent.”
