Morgan Hill, Calif. – Sutter Health recently leased 9,950 square feet of medical office space in the existing care center located at 16130 Juan Hernandez Dr., Morgan Hill. Sutter plans to offer a range of services from the Morgan Hill Care Center, including internal medicine, family medicine and imaging, giving residents access to its recognized high-quality outpatient medical care.

“Our expansion into Morgan Hill marks a milestone in our mission to continuously improve healthcare access and care delivery,” said Kevin Cook, Greater Silicon Valley president for Sutter Health. “We recognize Morgan Hill residents have unique healthcare needs, and this lease is a significant step towards meeting them.”

The lease is part of Sutter’s broader plan to address the need for greater healthcare access by adding more than 25 new ambulatory care centers across Northern California over the next few years. It also brings doctors from the Palo Alto Foundation Medical Group (PAFMG) to the area.

“Many residents of Morgan Hill and the surrounding communities travel to see PAFMG doctors in San Jose, Los Gatos, Mountain View and Santa Cruz,” said Dr. Kurt VandeVort, CEO of PAFMG. “We’re excited to offer primary care closer to where these folks call home.”

Sutter Health is focused on making healthcare more convenient for patients while continuing to be the best place for care teams to work. “This care center, in the heart of Morgan Hill, is a great example of Sutter’s intention to fulfill these commitments to our patients and our people,” said Catherine Krna, MBA, Sutter Health’s Ambulatory CEO in the greater Silicon Valley.

The Morgan Hill Care Center is well-suited for Sutter’s needs and offers another strategic advantage: proximity to a parcel of land that is entitled for future medical development.

Earlier this year, Sutter purchased an 8.5-acre parcel at Juan Hernandez Drive and Highway 101 currently entitled for up to 124,500 square feet of development, much of which is intended for healthcare purposes. This investment underscores Sutter’s long-term goal to provide accessible, high-quality healthcare services to Morgan Hill and surrounding communities.

“Healthcare is a key area of focus and future growth for the city,” said Matthew Mahood, City of Morgan Hill Economic Development director. “We are pleased Sutter Health is establishing a presence in Morgan Hill, as their services will help enhance the quality of life for our residents.”

“As our community grows, so does our need to expand accessible medical services. The city is thrilled to support Sutter Health’s move to Morgan Hill – it’s just what the doctor ordered,” said Morgan Hill Mayor Mark Turner.

Sutter expects to begin offering patient care services at the Morgan Hill Care Center in phases, starting with MRI services before the end of 2024.
