Sutter Health’s CEO will retire in early 2022, the health system announced Wednesday.
Sarah Krevans has been CEO of the Sacramento, Calif.-based health system since January 2016. Not-for-profit Sutter said its board will conduct a national search for her successor and will consider both internal and external candidates.
Prior to becoming Sutter’s first female CEO, Krevans served as the system’s chief operating officer, regional executive officer and president of Sutter’s Sacramento Sierra region.
“Sutter’s integral role in the communities we serve has been on full display during the pandemic,” Krevans said. “I see firsthand how incredible our people are—especially our staff and clinicians on the frontlines treating patients—and the significant benefits of an integrated network that can share best practices, resources and support.”

Sutter Health Board Chair Gubby Barlow said in a statement that the board is grateful for Krevans’ commitment to Sutter’s mission and vision during her 22 years with the organization.
“As CEO for the past five years, Sarah has been a leading voice in advocating for the patients and communities that Sutter Health serves,” the statement said.
Krevans was the second-highest-paid female CEO among not-for-profit health systems in 2018, having made $4.5 million in total compensation that year.
