Sarah Krevans is president and CEO of Sutter Health, a Northern California based not-for-profit health system that cares for 3 million patients—or one in every 100 Americans, in one of the most diverse and innovative regions in the world. Krevans oversees Sutter Health’s 24 hospitals, 55,000 employees, 14,000 clinicians, outpatient services, research facilities, and home health and hospice care.

Krevans was named as Sutter Health’s president and CEO in January 2016. Prior to this role, she served as Sutter Health’s chief operating officer, regional executive officer and president of the Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region. Previously, Krevans held executive roles at Kaiser Permanente and served as deputy director of Maine’s Bureau of Medical Services and acting director of Medicaid health planning and licensure programs.

Under Krevans’ leadership, Sutter Health has been recognized by independent organizations as a healthcare innovator and a national leader in healthcare quality and advancing health equity. True to its not-for-profit mission, the organization regularly reinvests in the communities it serves, and the Sutter Health network provides compassionate care for more low-income Medi-Cal patients in Northern California than any other health system.

Krevans serves on the American Hospital Association Health Care Systems Council, California Hospital Association Board of Directors, California Hospital Association Governance Task Force, United States of Care Founders Council and Sutter Health Board of Directors.

She has been named as one of the “Top 25 Women Leaders” by Modern Healthcare, included on Modern Healthcare’s list of the “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare,” nominated as a “Visionary of the Year” by the San Francisco Chronicle, and named one of the “Most Influential Women in Business” by the San Francisco Business Times.

Krevans earned a Master of Business Administration degree and a Masters of Public Health degree from the University of California, Berkeley. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree at Boston University.
