From California Gold Rush Town to High-Speed Internet City
You probably remember Sacramento, California from grade school when you had to memorize state capitals. If you delved deeper, you learned that Sacramento was a major distribution point during the California Gold Rush in the late 1800s. Today, its economy is driven by healthcare and healthcare technology.
The University of California, Davis Medical Center anchors Sacramento’s healthcare industry. While a major research institution in areas like cancer, health policy, neuroscience, and infectious diseases, it also holds the distinction of being the only level 1 trauma center in inland Northern California that can treat both children and adults. In other words, whatever the injury, UC Davis Medical Center is equipped to not only treat the injury, but also help with prevention and rehabilitation. It’s also a leader in the use of electronic health records and telehealth, which leverages technology to help deliver direct clinical care to patients in rural communities, or who otherwise aren’t able to travel to the UC Davis Medical Center.
