2003 InformationWeek 500

For 15 years, InformationWeek has tracked the technology practices of the nation's largest and most innovative companies. InformationWeek publishes an annual ranking of the top 500 users of technology. Sutter Health ranked 205th in the 2002 InformationWeek 500 survey. We have jumped to 53rd in the 2003 InformationWeek 500 rankings.

The survey includes a section in the industry breakdown titled "Health Care & Medical: Tech Innovation Keeps The Doctor In." The article includes a number of quotes from Sutter's CIO and notes that "Sutter, which runs 33 hospitals in Northern California, spends about $100 million annually on IT and has about 680 IT projects in progress at one time."

It is very rewarding to be involved as a senior member of the management team building the IT organization within Sutter Health.
