Landscaping, irrigation and outdoor washing have been reduced and all Sutter Health facilities are reviewing water consumption and looking for ways to save.
“I think the public expects to see that rather than lush green lawns during a drought,” says Susan Frank, president of Suma Landscaping Inc., which maintains the grounds at all the Alta Bates Summit campuses.
The goal is to permanently reduce water use while providing patients with high-quality care and personal service.

A year ago, Cinthia Zapien – a 21-year-old college student with a bright future – learned that she had a genetic heart disorder that put her at risk of dying from sudden cardiac arrest. Cinthia has Long QT Syndrome, a rare abnormality of the heart’s electrical activity that causes dangerous heart arrhythmias. Cinthia started suffering fainting spells and other symptoms about five years ago and much of her father’s side of the family all suffers from the same disorder.
“My aunt and three of her daughters have the same condition and one of my cousins died when she was 11,” said Cinthia. “All of my sisters and my father are being monitored for Long QT Syndrome as well.”
